On Friday, November 24, 2017 we were delighted to welcome Blessed Cardinal Newman
school to ATC for a morning of tennis. In total, 59 students of all ages
arrived at the centre excited and ready to learn, keen to come inside from the
cold and enjoy a sport which many had never experienced before.
students were visibly excited to be playing in such a beautiful facility and
were desperate to get started on court. After a short introduction to the
centre’s values, four of our tennis
professionals started the players off with some self rallying skills before
progressing onto other games and practices which allowed everyone to develop
our Head of Talent ID, Schools and Camps commented that “the students were superb! Engaged and polite
from the first to the last minute and a pleasure to teach.” The feedback from students was equally
positive, with many in disbelief that the 90 minutes had disappeared so
This visit from Blessed Cardinal Newman is one of many recent schools visits to the centre, from all ages of establishment. Additionally, our coaches have been busy taking our services to schools themselves, delivering outstanding instruction to students without the transport requirements that are so often challenging for schools.
If you know a school that would be interested in being a part of the Canadian Western Bank School Tennis Program please contact Greig at firstname.lastname@example.org and help us introduce the
wonderful game of tennis to the next generation!
