Give It Your Max part finance a schools tennis program called the Merton Tennis Initiative that offers the opportunity of playing tennis to young people in Merton. Thanks to this initiative we have been able to introduce many schools and children to tennis, particularly in the Mitcham and Morden side of the Borough.
The Merton Tennis Initiative allows for a qualified Community Tennis Coach to be placed into a school for a set day every week over a 5-week period. The coach will deliver a free lunch club for Key Stage 1 pupils and then two afternoon lessons for different year groups that the school chooses. During the time in the school, the tennis coach will support the development of the class teacher to improve their confidence and knowledge of delivering high quality tennis during their PE lessons.
Partners included in this initiative: Merton School Sport partnership (MSSP), Wimbledon Junior Tennis Initiative (WJTI) & Give It Your Max (GIYM).
