“Parents and Tots” tennis lessons program designed for 3 to 5 year old kids and enables them to learn the basics of tennis through a series of fun activities, based on the fundamental areas of balance, co-ordination, agility, movement and racket and ball skills.

Tots play with parents using red balls and 19 inch rackets. The focus is about making it as much fun as possible during tennis lessons.

The overall focus in this parents and tots tennis lessons stage is to promote the love of physical activity while laying the foundation for future enjoyment of sport. The participant learns to move efficiently emphasizing agility, balance and coordination while participating in a variety of physical activities and most importantly, unstructured play. Physical activity creates neural connections across multiple pathways in the brain, particularly when activities integrating rhythm are used. (Council of Physical Education for Children, 2000).
