Tiny Tots Tennis - Downshire 2012

Downshire Tennis Club welcome children from 3 years into the Club to enjoy Clubs programme for Tiny Tots. Club Head Coach Stuart McQuitty says, ‘the earlier we get children on to a tennis court the better.’

All young children taking part in tennis sessions at Downshire have the
opportunity to play with modified red, orange and green tennis balls, with smaller modified racquets on smaller courts in-line with the Tennis Ireland Tennis 10’s initiative, making it easier for them to acquire basic skills early.

The sessions enable children to develop hand eye co-ordination whilst enjoying fun games, dodge ball, and hitting through hoops which then allow children to enjoy rallies at a much earlier age, before progressing to competing in Tennis 10’s events.

Please see the News Flash attached for further details.

Maybe the journey to Olympic gold starts with your initiative at your Tennis Club.
