From this point on, the Community Sport Network team will no longer be sending out articles.

It was established in August 2013 as a free to access news-line on all things happening in Community Sport. It was set up as a small contribution to the legacy of London 2012 which inspired us all and will live long in our memories.

Nearly five years down the track there are now a number of other respected sporting news offerings online, so we thank you for your readership and support which has extended to over 200 countries, and wish you all well in your ongoing efforts to help create a fitter, healthier sporting nation.

Thanks for being a part of it!

University of Bath Tennis Outreach Programme

0 0
Tennis participation figures might be falling nationally but locally the University of Bath’s outreach programme is bearing dividends.

Week on week, almost 1000 young people access tennis through Team Bath Tennis with total outreach figures now sitting at around 4000 each year and growing.

Participants are from all age groups. They take part in sessions run by Team Bath coaches.  Many of these are organised on the University’s eight indoor and 14 outdoor courts but increasingly via outreach sessions in the region’s schools and clubs.

The youth programme, in particular, is receiving beacon attention as a potential for best practice nationwide.

For young players there is also a clear pathway from 3-5 year old "Tots Tennis” through development activities at each age-group and then a competitive team structure which culminates, in conjunction with MCTA, at the level of players like Anna Smith and Jocelyn Rae who are GB’s Federation Cup doubles combination.

Director of Tennis Barry Scollo and head community coach Matt Smith are go-getters and, everyday, are seeking to develop their outreach programmes further.
