Coaching in Schools
e have close relationships with several schools in Wiltshire. These provide a link to the relevant local tennis clubs. We are available to do sessions during PPA time or as part of the schools extra curricular activities.
See below some of the schools we currently work with. Our intention is focused on the children’s enjoyment and development within the game of tennis. If any schools wish for us get involved with any Sports Day Activities, Coaching during school time, extra curricular sessions and so on please do contact us for further information on our availability and prices.
RAMSBURY PRIMARY SCHOOL
Currently Tennis Xperience UK undertakes tennis coaching at Ramsbury Junior School in the Summer terms. This takes place on Tuesdays 13.00 – 15.00pm, the first hour being for one year group and the second hour for the other and is during PPA time. Each half term we teach two year groups so in each term four year groups have tennis coaching. Lessons consist of a combination of co-ordination, agility, fitness exercises and learning to play tennis using Mini Tennis nets. Those who wish to progress further and play more have the option of joining in our club programme – as several have done already. It is also a great way for us to seek any potential players for the future.
Great Bedwyn C of E Primary School
Catherine and Lewis, of Tennis Xperience UK, visit Great Bedwyn school weekly to give children the opportunity to play and practice their tennis skills.
The great lessons involve coaching and time to play games with school friends. Their enthusiasm has inspired many children to play, learn as well as enjoy tennis more frequently.

Pinewood School, Bourton
We have a strong link with the Director of Sport at Pinewood School which has created the opportunity for us to deliver specialist coaching to Pinewood children each week beyond their normal busy Games Programme. Currently Lewis delivers the tennis sessions on Thursdays at 3.10–4.10pm. Several juniors are actively involved in our coaching Programme at Ramsbury Tennis Club.
