It was good to see the sun shining down on Mayow Park, Lewisham, for the DSActive tennis taster event run in partnership with Millwall Community Trust and the Tennis Foundation.
The session was split in two for different age groups. The first 45 minutes was for players aged 5-9, and the second 45 minutes for those aged 10-22. It was lovely to see everyone who came along and they all thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
The coach worked through a fun warm up to get everyone’s feet moving and then moved on to some drills to practice the basics of tennis. It’s important to get the foundations right before progressing to more advanced skills so during the taster day the coach worked on improving foot work, practising catching and throwing a ball, and learning how to hit the ball correctly.
Everyone really enjoyed the taster event and we’d like to say a huge thank to the coach and volunteers for helping run it. The date for the first regular Millwall Community Trust session is still to be confirmed so keep an eye on our social media and website to find out when it will be.
