Primary - Tennis


Cork Sports Partnership and Tennis Ireland have teamed up to roll out a Cork Primary Schools Tennis Programme in 2018. The programme will run across a limited number of Cork primary schools between Easter and the summer holidays.

The aim of the programme is to introduce 2nd & 3rd class primary school children to the Sport of Tennis in a supportive environment. In return for full commitment to the programme, each school will receive a 4 week Coaching block and FREE Entry to the Cork Primary Schools Tennis event which will take place in May 2018. 


The programme will cost each school €10 per pupil to take part in which will be payable upon acceptance to the programme. This programme is heavily subsidised by Cork Sports Partnership and Tennis Ireland. 

Steps involved in the Application Process

Step 1: School registers 2nd or 3rd classes to participate in the Primary Schools Tennis Programme by completing the programme registration form by Friday 15th March 2018.  

Step 2: Registration will be acknowledged by Cork Sports Partnership following closing date on 15th March.

Step 3: Successful schools will be contacted by Cork Sports Partnership to confirm acceptance on to the programme and invoiced €10 per pupil to take part. Unsuccessful schools will be contacted by Cork Sports Partnership and will be placed on a waiting list for future phases of the programme.

Step 4: Following receipt of payment, a Tennis Ireland coach will contact all successful schools to arrange suitable training days in the school.

Step 5: The Tennis coach will deliver the 4 training sessions as agreed with school starting in April/May.

Step 6: Schools will be invited to take part in the inaugural Primary Schools Tennis blitz for FREE in May 2018. In the event that a large number of schools are located in the same area of Cork, an alternative venue/blitz day may be arranged to minimise travel.
