‘’You can’t be serious!’’

Well you can….

Serious about having fun.

And that’s our mantra at Tennis-4-Kids.

We believe fun should form the basis of any learning for young children, especially when it comes to sport, which is why our classes can be enjoyed by, and are beneficial to toddlers as young as two. Our cleverly crafted fun and games-based approach means children attending our tennis classes in South East London learn tennis techniques without even realising it.

Tennis-4-Kids also provide tennis lessons within schools

Giving your child an advantage

We offer so much more than tennis techniques. Sports based activities for young children offer a host of other proven benefits. Fitness, confidence, fine motor and hand eye co-ordination, team work, sportsmanship, discipline and sports etiquette, the ability to understand winning and losing – and we could go on. We give children the opportunity to gain an early interest in tennis as they learn key skills through entertaining and inspiring tennis sessions.

We offer safe, fun tennis classes after school, during term-time, in South East London. Using soft balls and specialist small racquets, we build tennis skills in even the youngest children through repetitive moves captured within fun and easy to understand games. At a young age your child will grasp the basics of forehand, the ability to serve, know how to win a point and as they progress, play singles and doubles. Our coaches are highly experienced and skilled in working with and engaging young kids, led by our passionate, fun focused skilled tennis player and director Gordon Wood.
