Tennis has long been thought of as an elite sport, and one that is hard to bring to your schools without tennis courts or prior knowledge of tennis. This could not be further from the truth! You can easily bring tennis to your students in non-traditional spaces like gyms or blacktops, using modified tennis equipment to ensure all kids stay active and have success. The United States Tennis Association (USTA) is here to help you introduce tennis to your students with free K-12 curriculum co-written by SHAPE America, free tennis equipment, and more resources. 4 million new players picked up a racquet during the pandemic, and it’s easy to see why - tennis is a naturally distanced sport that you can enjoy for a lifetime! Join us for a session where you’ll learn how to modify tennis to teach in your PE classes to students of all ages and abilities. During the session, you’ll get a chance to participate in various activities from the K-12 curriculum and learn how to set up tennis in various classroom settings. We will also cover how to receive the free curriculum and tennis equipment for your school.
