“Living Tennis are the main providers of tennis at Claires Court. Their coaches have an excellent understanding of how to introduce the sport and know how to develop boys and girls abilities exceptionally well. We work in partnership with them to provide the best educational outcomes for their aspiring academy tennis players, whose training and study completely dominate their time. Living Tennis work really closely with the School to ensure the child’s coaching programme jigsaws well with the vital academic elements of the school timetable. The mentoring and pastoral support across the two organisations safeguards the best outcomes for them."
“Alongside this we have been able to enhance our school enrichment programme with a quality tennis provision and our teachers’ knowledge and understanding of the game has been enhanced with them working alongside Living Tennis’s professional coaches.”
