The Tennis for Primary Schools workshop is a 3 hour practical workshop suitable for all teachers interested in delivering tennis in schools. Participants will have the opportunity to practice a range of activities specifically designed for large groups of students from Foundation to Year 7 and 8. Differentiated learning that caters for the developmental readiness and individual needs of all students within a limited playing area using modified equipment will be emphasised throughout the workshop.

The Game Sense Approach – which is 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.
