Please note: This news story may contain information that is no longer current or up to date.
Tennis School Event 2017

Cen­tral Col­lege sport stu­dents deliv­ered over 1625 hours of coach­ing by sup­port­ing the Not­ting­ham Mini Ten­nis Schools Fes­ti­val which was organ­ised to run along­side the 2017 Aegon Open Not­ting­ham (917 June).

Fifty stu­dents coached over 2000 pri­ma­ry school chil­dren who attend­ed the mini-ten­nis fes­ti­val as part of the cel­e­bra­tions. The stu­dents had to under­go pre-event train­ing which was deliv­ered by ten­nis coach Mar­tyn Jones. Then they took part in an onsite brief­ing and famil­iari­sa­tion ses­sion at the ten­nis cen­tre before the event took place.

Diane Garfield, Com­mu­ni­ty and Per­for­mance Sport Man­ag­er at Cen­tral, said

As in pre­vi­ous years our stu­dents had a fan­tas­tic oppor­tu­ni­ty to be part of a major sport­ing event in Not­ting­ham and devel­op their sport lead­er­ship and coach­ing skills. Many of the sport stu­dents have now signed up to get involved in more events at the ten­nis cen­tre, there­fore work­ing more close­ly with employ­ers in the indus­try. Sport work expe­ri­ence is embed­ded into the stu­dents’ sport course at col­lege and it devel­ops employ­a­bil­i­ty skills for their future careers.
