NORFOLK SCHOOLS TENNIS PROGRAMME

In 2018 NLTA introduced a pilot scheme designed to encourage primary schools to match fund NLTA grants and deliver a comprehensive coaching programme on school sites. The initial pilot targeted schools within Breckland. Schools in Weeting, Methwold and Northwold took part in the programme with Y3/4 pupils receiving a 16 week curriculum time coaching programme and after school club. Hingham, Gt Ellingham, Rocklands and Hethersett Primary also received coaching with pupils being encouraged to play at Hingham and Wymondham Tennis Clubs.

In 2019, the programme continued to fund the Breckland plan. NLTA also offered the same match fund scheme to schools in West Norfolk. Over 15 schools took part with the coaching being co-ordinated by King Edward School and the West Norfolk School Sports Partnership. NLTA have confirmed agreements in place for 2020. Support will continue in West Norfolk with KES and National Tennis Association at Lynnsport looking to engage over 25 schools.

Funding has also been confirmed with Easton & Otley College Tennis Centre who have already delivered taster sessions to over 15 local schools. Wymondham Tennis Club will be active in schools across Hethersett, Wymondham and Attleborough.

In total over 1000 children have taken part in the programme, many of whom experiencing the game for the first time. A new Teacher Training Course will be starting in march. The LTA are hosting FREE 2hour workshops at local schools across the region. Once you have attended a session you are then entitled to receive either a £250 equipment grant or a 10 week coaching block by an accredited coach in your area. If you would like more information regarding the NLTA Schools programme please email Stu Silvester, NLTA Schools Officer via news@norfolktennis.org
