Accessible Tennis for Kids at Elly Shearman Tennis Coaching
We have run occasional Accessible Tennis for Kids groups for a while now and we are so very pleased to be running a NEW six week block and sessions during the school holidays.
These groups are aimed at any child between 6 and 10 with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND).
They are great fun sessions run by our brilliant coaches and the children really enjoy spending time playing tennis outside in the fresh air.

If you are unsure please ask your coach when you next see them and they will be able to advise.
