Learn new tennis skills with your unit!
New activities and training in partnership with LTA She Rallies
You and your unit can get active this summer with our new set of unit meeting activities, created with LTA She Rallies!
These easy, pick-up-and-go activities are designed to help build girls’ confidence in taking part in tennis and sports. There’s one for every section, and they’re all free to download. As they can be done socially distanced, they’re a great option for any face-to-face guiding sessions you have planned!
- For Rainbows - Balancing balloons
- For Brownies - Relays and rallies
- For Guides - Ready to rally
- For Rangers - Tennis tournaments
About LTA She Rallies – further training opportunities for volunteers
LTA She Rallies is an exciting programme which aims to get more girls trying and enjoying tennis by training up volunteers like you!
LTA She Rallies' Activator training was developed by the world’s most famous tennis mum – Judy Murray. Whilst Judy is a whizz on the court, you don’t have to be – in fact you don’t need any tennis experience at all. The activities are non-technical and designed to do all the teaching for you.
In partnership with the Lawn Tennis Association, all Girlguiding leaders can access free local training courses which are centred on creating a fun environment, developing basic skills and simple activities that will get girls working together. Whilst the focus is on fun and building confidence, girls will develop useful co-ordination and movement skills which can be applied to almost every sport!
Leaders aged 14 and above can sign up to the local training. When you complete it, you can apply for a free kit bag containing loads of brilliant equipment to help you create further active and engaging sessions for your units.
To register your interest please complete this short form and someone will get back to you.
If you are based in Birmingham or Eastbourne, there is a special opportunity for you to attend a local Activator training session with Judy Murray herself!
The workshops will take place on:
- Saturday 19 June from 9.00am – 12.30pm at Billesley Indoor Tennis Centre
- Saturday 26 June from 9.00am – 12.30pm at Eastbourne Sports Park
