The LTA Primary Skills resource contains 30 fundamental tennis based skills challenges. The challenges are designed to build the confidence of pupils in a fun and motivational way which will, over time build their competence. 

Each challenge card includes a diagram, instructions, the equipment required and suggestions on how to make the activity easier or harder, allowing for differentiation and progression.

The resource is designed to be flexible, whereby a challenge could be done in isolation at school or at home, or the challenges could be used as an intra-school skills festival. The majority of the activities are pair based with a pupil performing and their partner scoring, then swapping roles.

We're proud to share the #RediscoverSummer campaign.
