Our Schools Programs

Vida Tennis runs a variety of school programs to help grow and foster the sport for players of all ages and levels. The Vida team offers students the chance to learn valuable life skills in a fun and encouraging environment. With participation options for schools of all sizes, we’ve made it easy to get students out of the classroom and onto the tennis court.

Sporting Schools

Tennis Australia aims to provide more opportunities for people to play tennis, which is one of the 32 sports associated with Sporting Schools, more often. We look forward to building on the existing relationships we’ve built with schools through our National Schools programs.

The Sporting Schools tennis program will complement the already existing ANZ Tennis Hot Shots Program, which has successfully introduced tennis to over one million students in different schools over the last three years.

Vida Tennis is accredited by Tennis Australia and Sporting Schools has been helping kids stay active through tennis in schools for years now. Our tennis programs are run before school, during school, or after school and are always linked to the local tennis club.

If you would like to discuss how Vida Tennis, Tennis Australia, and Sporting Schools can establish a program in your school in the coming term, please don’t hesitate to email us at info@vidatennis.com.au or call Kane at 0401052636.

The Tennis Australia Products

Tennis Australia offers three programs as part of Sporting Schools.

The Partnership and Play programs for primary schools are based on the ANZ Tennis Hot Shots program. They are made up of fun tennis activities that support skill acquisition and movement development all while playing the game in a meaningful way. Through both programs, students will develop the confidence and competence needed when trying new sports.

The Tennis for Secondary Schools Partnership program supports schools in delivering tennis within their curriculum during health and physical education. It is focused on teaching the tactical and technical elements of the game to students through fun and engaging tennis games and activities that help develop movement, confidence, and competence.

I have had an involvement with Vida Tennis for the past eight years, through their association with Milgate PS where they have run Tennis Clinics as part of the Physical Education Program, where I am the coordinator.

Vida Tennis have run programs for our Yr. 1’s, Yr. 2’s, Yr. 3’s, Yr. 4’s, Yr. 5’s & Yr. 6 classes. The Vida Tennis coaches have always been extremely professional and approachable. They are highly skilled, extremely encouraging and have a terrific repour with our students. In recent years we have made a number of changes to our programs and these have included things such as use of low compression balls & smaller racquets for our younger students. These changes have been highly valuable and have allowed many of our students to achieve greater success through the programs Vida Tennis offer at Milgate PS.

I would highly recommend Vida Tennis to run tennis programs within your organisation and I know they would run a highly professional program.

Vida Tennis has been a great supporter of the Syndal District School Sport’s Association over many years now. They have made themselves available to conduct tennis clinics in our schools and have also given us access to their courts when required. Their clinics are always well organised, enjoyable and very professionally run by coaches who know how to build up a healthy rapport with their students. They also support our annual Community Links Sport’s Day, which exposes our students to a variety of sports, that they might not normally have access to. We believe this arrangement is a win/win situation for both Vida Tennis and for our students.

I am writing this letter of recommendation on Vida Tennis. They have been working with St Kevin’s College for over 5 years and we have noticed a large increase in both participation levels and the quality of player we are producing. We work very closely with Kane Dewhurst who is our Director of Coaching. He coaches our First Team along with working with our Year 7,8 and 9 A Teams. Kane has a been able to influence our boys tennis both on the court with ability and also through the way our boys conduct themselves around the sport of tennis. We have implemented a very successful development programme in which Kane, Angelo & Ryan (other Vida Team members) run. Our boys from this squad are now flourishing with enthusiasm for tennis but also for success. Most of these boys will play First Tennis is the next few years as a result of this programme. Our boys development was demonstrated by our win in the A.P.S Tennis Premiership in 2011. This was the first time in 16 years that the school has won this title. Tennis across all years levels have achieved consistent great results, participation and good sportsmanship. I can only highly recommend Vida Tennis to you.
