Toddler Tennis is a specialist coaching company which uses fun, age appropriate activities designed to get 2-5 year olds active whilst developing new skills. The business was formed with the sole intention of bringing tots tennis into club, halls & educational environments. Our exciting and structured programme allows children the opportunity to learn tennis specific skills, interact with other children and develop important social, mental and physical attributes.
The sessions introduce how to throw, catch and move whilst developing tennis specific shots.
