The Tennis for Schools workshop is a practical on-court workshop suitable for all teachers interested in delivering tennis in a school setting. Participants will experience a range of tennis activities specifically designed for large groups of school students of varying abilities within a limited playing area using modified equipment.
The program, which adopts the Game Sense Approach central to the Australian Sports Commission’s sporting philosophy of Playing for Life, will also highlight the concepts of ‘play with purpose’ to develop the technical motor skills and tactical decision-making skills of tennis as complimentary pairs. This involves guided play using questions to shape, focus and make visible student learning, the deliberate modification of task and environmental constraints to meet learning needs of the students at different stages of game development and as a tool to create the right challenge point for students during practice, and direct instruction to promote tactical understanding and technique development where appropriate
