Playing tennis improves agility, balance and co-ordination. HQ classes support children in becoming competent, not just in tennis but all sports that involve these fundamental physical skills.
Playing tennis can improve critical thinking, mental alertness, and tactical thinking. The cognitive element of HQ classes is highly important. Research has shown that a structured program of movement should be part of every child’s education.
Being able to socialise with opponents and partners while maintaining good sportsmanship comes naturally with playing tennis. This key component is achievable with our excellent lesson plans and positive coaching methods.
Children who play tennis can develop leadership skills and strategies around focus, self-control, and responsibility that will work well for them later in life. In our classes we progress leadership skills though our well planned programs.
