Play it Again! Developing the Best Games and Practices for Kids of Today!

Tennis is one of the greatest sports in the world and the only truly global sport you can play for the whole of your life, but this doesn’t mean a lot unless we present the game to young players in a way that inspires them and gets them wanting to come back for more and spend more time on court.

This 4 hour workshop keeps tennis at it heart but shows you how to use simple mechanics to keep all your players excited and motivated. Included elements:

  • Mechanics we can borrow from e-games
  • How to present challenge so everyone loves it
  • Giving Choices and learning about the kids you are teaching
  • Teaching smart kids – setting puzzles and challenges
  • How to create excitement on the court without turning it into Disneyland

This is a workshop that will add to and enhance your on court activities in a very practical and postive way for all your young players.
