Primary and Secondary Schools

Cork Sports Partnership and Tennis Ireland have teamed up to roll out a Cork Primary Schools Tennis Programme in 2019/20. The programme will run across a limited number of Cork primary schools.

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. 

The programme will cost each school €8 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. 

Check out this short video to see a sample of a Games Strand with Tennis Ireland.
