The Padel4all Schools programme was unveiled to schools during the final term of the school year and padel tennis has proven to be a big hit with the children and teachers.
Three primary schools and one secondary school were chosen to receive several in-school padel taster sessions as part of their summer sports schedule.
The primary school programme saw children learn and progress basic racket and movement skills through a variety of fun padel challenges including; the importance of being ready, sending and receiving skills, judging flight and arrival distances and target games.
The secondary school sessions were delivered to Key Stage 3 pupils as part of their extra-curricular enrichment programme. The programme delivered the padel basics to over 100 children during a three week period. Holly Alabidi, Head of Physical Education at Great Western Academy, said;
“GWA have loved having Padel4all in during the Summer Term to run a series of sessions through our student enrichment programme. Padel Tennis has been a huge success and it’s fantastic to offer our pupils a new and exciting sport which is great fun to play. The Autumn follow-on sessions are already fully subscribed such has been its popularity and we look forward to welcoming the Padel4all team back in September”
