Just some of the feedback from our Tennis Tykes'€¦

  • "I'd just like to express my sincere thanks for the sessions you held in school today. The children thoroughly enjoyed their lessons and it was a fantastic taster to tennis. Thank you once again, I hope you enjoyed it as much as the children did. "
    Emma Kitwood (Reception class teacher) - Starbeck Primary School, Harrogate
  • "We have been really impressed with how Thomas' (aged 3) co-ordination skills have developed so quickly through the classes"
  • "I can't quite believe that following the Tennis Tykes classes, Millie (aged 3.5) is able to engage in simple hitting rallies over the net... I wish Tennis Tykes had been around when her older brother was 3"
  • "Your sessions are great, in an ideal world we would run a Tennis Tykes session every week at this nursery"
  • "Toby gets so excited coming to the Tennis Tykes lessons, he talks about them constantly all week and can't wait until the next lesson"
