Fairland Tennis Club to host tennis with teddies

FAIRLAND – Furry friends can help your youngster learn tennis.

Why do teddy bears always have relaxing picnics in the park? Because they tire themselves out playing tennis beforehand.

The Kinetik Tennis Academy at Fairland Tennis Club will host a free Teddy Tennis Clinic for children aged two to six years old on 25 Nov.

According to the director of the academy, Jean de Lange, the clinic focuses on establishing the foundations of tennis through an interactive learning environment including music, pictures and teddy bear characters.

The clinic is the brainchild of United Kingdom tennis brand, Teddy Tennis, and is conducted in 13 countries.

“We are very excited to partner with a brand that is exclusive in what it offers to parents,” De Lange said. “What is important to us is that it has been researched and tested successfully at clubs, pre-schools, and nurseries for over 12 years. I have never seen anything like it in the tennis industry in the last 15 years.”

He invited pre-schools, nurseries and interested parents to bring their children through for some fun in the sun with every child’s favourite companion.

Booking is essential and all equipment is provided. Just bring your sunscreen and shoes.

Philip Lawson, managing partner at Teddy Tennis Randburg said, “We have had a very positive response from pre-school and nursery [school] owners as to the educational value it will add to their children. We are launching the programme in 2018 and are currently recruiting nurseries and pre-schools that would like to receive this exceptional educational sports programme.”

The Teddy Tennis’ curriculum-based teaching system has been developed using the Visual Auditory Kinaesthetic accelerated learning style, which basically caters for children to learn through seeing, listening and participating in physical activities.

The event is from 8am to 12pm.
