Tot and Parent Tennis comes to Ballymena – a programme for 3 to 6 year olds

BLTC say about the programme, “This programme is designed by Ballymena Lawn Tennis Club to get 3-6 year olds active and learning new skills in an exciting and social environment. Parents are encouraged to stay during each tots session, as you can play a key part in helping them learn and have fun.

Each session will be packed with activities, exercises and fun tennis games. As they work through the programme they will develop and build up their physical ‘ABC’s’ – Agility, Balance, Co-ordination, as well as basic tennis technique. The children will also develop throwing and receiving skills, whilst developing numeracy and language skills alongside their tennis. The brightly coloured equipment will also help to keep the children stimulated.”
