Parks Tennis has been appointed by Sheffield City Council for 10 years to deliver a community tennis programme across the city, where we look after community tennis across seven parks venues and two secondary schools.
We are passionate about offering children opportunities to play tennis - regardless of age, ability or background, and are delighted to be working with Give It Your Max to make this great sport of ours both accessible and affordable. Building links with local primary schools close to the parks and offering coaching in schools with pathways into the parks for children is one of our main objectives.
In 2017, a team of coaches delivered in 10 schools, introducing tennis to approximately 900 children in Sheffield. Parks Tennis also run the coaching programmes in the Sheffield Parks, providing important exit routes for the children on the GIYM programme. The parks programme has attracted nearly 4500 players of all ages since its start in 2015.
