On Friday 22nd March, 44 budding tennis stars from King Alfred’s School in Wantage, took to the courts for a ‘Tennis Leaders’ day’.
The session was led by Andy Aitken, Head Coach at Wantage Lawn Tennis Club, with assistance from the school’s Tennis Ambassadors – learning new skills around how to support and deliver school tennis sessions for others.
The programme, from the Lawn Tennis Association (LTA) is supported by Tennis Oxfordshire and has an overall aim to radically change the way tennis is delivered in secondary schools across Great Britain.
Andy Aikten said, ‘The programme has a real grass roots approach and aims to make tennis more engaging, fun to play, with less about ability and more about participation.’
