Edgbaston Priory Tennis Club began its partnership with GIYM in 2011 and since then it now offers Community Tennis, across 5 sites, Lordswood Community Tennis Club, Cannon Hill Park, Cotteridge Park, Circle Tennis Cub and Kings Norton Tennis Club, all of which offer opportunities for juniors to play tennis.
Approximately 400 children per week now play tennis at our community venues and an additional 350 per week at curriculum time schools sessions. Each school visited has a specific link to one of the 5 sites ensuring the children can continue playing in our after school programs. Some of these sessions are discounted to attract new players to the game.
Our Community Tennis Programme was awarded the prestigious 'AEGON LTA National Community Venue of the Year in 2015'.
We run player attraction programs all year round, including Tennis For Kids, Open Days, Benenden Festivals, Open Weeks, Adult sessions etc.
We also have started working with the Royal Foundation to offer older teens who may be disengaged with traditional education, the opportunity to become a tennis apprentice, and receive a 1 year employment and training programme, aimed at getting more young people in to employment in the sporting sector.
