Tennis’ Program Packages offered through Sporting Schools have slightly changed to make it easier for schools. Please see attached PDF for more information.
Term 1 2017 applications are opening now for schools so it is a good time to be contacting schools you work with to see when they are planning to deliver tennis and what your role can be. Please consider recommending the Play program option to schools that have been partnered for a while to encourage the establishment of competitions in and across schools.
