Timings: 13:00 - 16:00
Venue: Westcliff High School for Girls, Kenilworth Gardens, Westcliff-on-sea, Essex SS0 0BS

We believe tennis has the ability to support teenagers lead a healthy and active lifestyle and also develop the employability skills they need to achieve their future aspirations. To support secondary school teachers to use tennis in a fun, engaging and relevant way, the Tennis Foundation has developed a package of innovative support including free training, resources and equipment.
The three-hour Secondary Schools Tennis Teacher Training Course has been developed to provide teachers with the confidence and knowledge to deliver traditional and modified versions of the sport, such as Mini Tennis for teenagers and Cardio Tennis.
Free resources and equipment
Every teacher attending the Secondary Course is supported with a free copy of the award-winning Secondary Schools Tennis Teacher Resource (Best Secondary Resource, Education Resources Awards 2013). The resource provides ideas and lesson plans for delivering tennis on a tennis court, in a sports hall or playground as well as providing resources to assist teachers in assessing the ability of pupils.
Each school represented at a Secondary Course is also supported with a free Schools Tennis Equipment Pack*, worth over £500, which contains, 30x Mini Tennis Rackets, 60x Mini Tennis Red balls, a 6m Mini Tennis net and a roll of barrier tape.
Please note: Schools Tennis Equipment Packs are limited to one per school and if your school has not previously received one.

This course is aimed at qualified and active secondary school teachers, teaching assistants and those working and delivering physical education in a secondary school environment.
