Parents have told us that it is difficult to get kids to their after school tennis sessions due to work commitments.  We understand the stress of managing work and getting children to many after school activities.  So we would like to help.

Tennis Canberra’s “Walk-To-Tennis” after school pick up service will give the kids a chance to attend their tennis lesson and their parents the luxury of picking up their kids at a more convenient time. We want all children to have the opportunity to stay healthy and learn a skill they can use for life.  Tennis has all the elements to help children develop into great people and we would hate to see anyone miss out.
