Info for Clubs

Last year Tennis Victoria were successful in gaining funding through VicHealth to develop a program that encourages youth aged between 12-17 years to be active in a non-competitive/social environment, known as Tennis 4 Teens.

The program is designed by teens, for teens. As such, the following core principles apply:

  • Youth have a “say” in the activities conducted in a session
  • Social element pre and/or post on court play
  • Flexible i.e. drop in/out/Pay As You Go
  • Flexible session delivery (including all social activities)
  • Active Facilitator
  • Use of an online platform to sign participants up

As long as the programs core values are maintained each venue is able to adapt the on and off court offerings, as required, to ensure it meets the needs of its participants. The majority of participants to date have said all they want to do is “just have a hit” and socialize with friends. Tennis 4 Teens is designed to carve out a specific time in a club’s schedule that says it’s OK for Teens to do just that.

Having a facilitator means that participants have someone to support them and guide them in their activity choice while providing peace of mind for parents that their children will be supervised whilst at the club. The facilitator does not need to be a coach.

To support your club in the roll out of this program we provide you with the following:

  • Local Area marketing support
  • Program delivery support such as access to online platform for registration and on and off court activity resources
  • Grant support – tailored support based on your program’s needs.

Have a passion for seeing more kids on court? Are you fun, easy going and happy to help? Then maybe you could facilitate the Tennis 4 Teens program at your club?

You don’t have to be a coach to facilitate the program either, just someone who is able to coordinate and support the teens with whatever it is they need. Tennis Victoria will also provide you with access to support materials (both for on and off court activities) and promotional material
