Regional Aims

As we continue to develop Tennis Able, we want to expand what we do and help other coaches within the region set up their own Tennis Able sessions. We’d love to inspire, encourage and support other coaches to start sessions at their own clubs to work and to with special needs groups as part of our partnership with the National Tennis Association.
