The County Team sprung a surprise on the staff and pupils from Springhill Primary School recently when they presented them with 19 new 21” Babolat tennis rackets and dozens of tennis balls.
The class were in their weekly coaching session with David Lloyd Coach Tom Payne when the County Team surprised the group with the rackets and balls.
The school will be using the rackets back at the school for all of the children giving them all the chance to play the game. Also PE Staff are attending a FREE 3 hour Primary School Teacher Training Course being run in Southampton by the LTA where they will receive an equipment bag worth £500 and resources to support the staff in delivering PE sessions to everyone in school.
Tennis Development Manager Zoe Bambridge said ““It was great to see so many young players enjoying tennis and working with such enthusiasm quietly together in their groups to complete the tasks set by their coach Tom. We hope they continue with tennis and we thank their teachers for their dedication to offer the children a different activity.”
