Lewisham and GIYM began their association in February 2014, when, South East London Tennis commenced the schools programme initially delivering tennis to two local primary schools in the Ladywell area. Up to 200 children from the two primary schools received 6 weeks of free coaching during curriculum time.
Each year group that receives school coaching from South East London Tennis are then offered a subsidized six-week after school coaching course, held at either Ladywell Fields or at the Ladywell Day Centre.
For 2014 – 2015, with extra funding gratefully received from GIYM, South East London Tennis will be expanding the schools programme and going into a further four primary schools enabling over 300 children to receive free tennis lessons.
The aim of South East London Tennis is to increase the profile of tennis in Lewisham and to increase the number of players participating in the after school and weekend tennis activities.
