Tennace® Game Progression System We know this will help our players to enjoy and develop their skills even more. This system describes player’s improvement through five levels before progress into Mini Tennis Red. It will also enable a quicker understanding of the game. Some players will progress very quickly; others will take longer. Often this is because some players practise their co-ordination skills more often, by doing more than one Mini Tennis class a week, playing other sports and practising at home.
Benefits of Tennis As an individual sport tennis training initially develops the athletic ability – co-ordination and body skills needed for all sports. Co-operation and competition are introduced gradually, pupils start to understand their own strengths and weaknesses and how to make it difficult for their opponent. Fair play and the importance of mental skills – concentration and determination start to be developed from a young age. The understanding of effort, hard-work and mutual respect define a pupils potential. Self-confidence, calmness and how to deal with all the challenges tennis presents are further challenges to be learnt. Quality Tennis Time is the platform for LIFE SKILLS.
