BSTC coaches Mike and Matt took part in a special event recently at the University of Bath Sports Training Village hosted by victorious Great Britain Davis Cup captain Leon Smith and former British number one Anne Keothavong which was aimed at inspiring the next generation of tennis coaches.
The key target was to kickstart the Lawn Tennis Association’s Tennis For Kids initiative, which aims to get 10,000 children aged between five and eight to pick up a racquet and play tennis for the first time.
It is part of the LTA’s Davis Cup Legacy Project, looking to build on Great Britain’s heroic and historic victory in the 2015 competition.
“The legacy is about impressing on these coaches about inspiring, captivating children and families to take up tennis,” said Smith, who captained GB to their first Davis Cup win since 1936.
