Working with local schools

Hackney Tennis has been working with local schools since 2001. We provide quality coaching in Hackney primary and secondary schools including after school clubs and school-based academy groups. Our programme also extends to delivering Hackney schools tournaments and supporting Hackney’s participation in wider programmes such as the London Youth Games. A number of schools hire courts for their own matches and activities for which we have a special rate.

If you would like to have a tennis coach working in your school, please contact the Tennis Office. We can provide coaches for curricular and extra-curricular sessions, one-off taster sessions and special events.

Schools Competitions

Each summer Hackney Tennis manages and runs the borough primary schools’ competitions.

There are three competition dates: Mini Red, Mini Orange and Mini Green.

Each event is a great day out for local school children to play in a fun environment for their school team. The winners of the Hackney schools’ Mini Red (Years 3 & 4) and Mini Orange (Years 5 & 6) competitions will go on to represent the London Borough of Hackney in the London Mini School Games championships later in the summer.

Hackney Tennis also manages the London Borough of Hackney London Youth Games team. For the first time in the 37 year history of the London Youth Games Tennis event, Hackney was the joint winner in 2016. This was a phenomenal achievement for Hackney Tennis and Hackney. The team was honoured at the 2016 Hackney Sports Awards – being awarded the ‘Outstanding Team Contribution’ award.

If you are interested in your school/your child’s school taking part in the schools’ events, or you/your child are keen to be part of the LB Hackney Youth Games Tennis team this summer, please get in touch:christian@hackneytennis.co.uk
