What is Teddy Tennis
Teddy Tennis – The Best Start a Child Can Get.
Children's tennis is being transformed by Teddy Tennis; a totally new and different way to encourage children aged 3, 4 and 5 years to get active and learn to play tennis.
Teddy Tennis is not about giving children boring tennis lessons; at Teddy Tennis children PLAY Teddy Tennis AND they have fantastic FUN too!
Teddy Tennis works by combining music, pictures and 'Teddy Bear' stories into a totally interactive learning adventure that your child will love.
But Teddy Tennis is much more than an activity programme; it will have a dramatic impact on many other areas of a child's development including:
- Speeding up the learning process
- Enhancing co-ordination
- Improving confidence and self-esteem
- Building communication skills and team work
- Laying the foundations for listening & learning
- Inspiring a love of sport
- Teaching the concept of sportsmanship and fair play
- Teaching the essential tennis skills
Teddy Tennis is marketed worldwide as a franchise programme, and is available at sports & tennis clubs, pre-schools, day care centre and nurseries and it is even available at some holiday resorts too!
As of January 2012, Teddy Tennis is operating in the UK, USA, Australia, Spain, the Netherlands, Slovenia, Egypt, Mauritius and the Maldives.
Music and Pictures
The Teddy Tennis program is based upon a whole series of songs, pictures, teddy bear characters and games that inspire young children to play tennis. All the songs, pictures, characters and games have been specifically written and created by Teddy Tennis for Teddy Tennis and they all play an important role in the program.
Music is used in all Teddy Tennis lessons. It provides the rhythm that is key to playing tennis successfully. Music helps speed up the learning process and it also increases the childrens' attention span, but above all it makes Teddy Tennis lessons fun. The words to the songs relate directly to the exercises or games being played and tell the children what to do. The children love the music and they very quickly pick up the words and sing along.
The pictures of teddy bears characters also play a key role in every Teddy Tennis lesson. They are used by Teddy Tennis Trainers to show the children what they are to do in each game and exercise. The children really relate to the teddy bear characters in these pictures, they see them as role models and want to copy everything the teddy bears do.
Teddy Tennis is transforming the teaching of children's tennis. Combining music and pictures into the learning process produces amazing results. Sound and sight are two of the key human senses and this dual stimulation produces a ‘total’ learning package rolled into one!
Teddy Tennis offers a whole lot more than just a series of tots tennis lessons. It captures a young child's imagination making learning and being active fun to do. Teddy Tennis really works; it provides the very best form of tennis lessons for children today. Want to know more?
