News: Sporty students ace tennis coaching

Please note: This news story may contain information that is no longer current or up to date.

More than 2,000 local primary school children benefitted from the coaching skills and experience of Nottingham College sport students at the Nottingham Mini Tennis Schools Festival recently.

Thirty-five sport students delivered over 1,000 hours of coaching at the event, which was organised to run alongside the 2018 Nature Valley Open Nottingham at Nottingham Tennis Centre (11-16 June).

The students undertook training with renowned tennis coach Martyn Jones, and also gained valuable experience of how a large sporting event is put together at the Tennis Centre before the event took place.

Tom Walker, Sport Work Experience Coordinator at Nottingham College, said: "It’s great to once again support such a major sporting event, as the students get to put their sport leadership and coaching skills into practice, while helping the community.

"As a result, many have now signed up to get involved in more events at the Tennis Centre, which will be great for their CV.”
