Shreddies Parks Tennis Camps
Shreddies are thrilled to be sponsoring Parks Tennis Camps. Tennis is a hugely popular sport in Ireland especially in July when everyone is glued to Wimbledon. They are proud to give the budding stars of the future a chance to learn from the best coaches.
For parents wanting their children to spend July learning a sport, making friends and being – all for a great price then Shreddies Parks Tennis is the camp for you. Given the current economic climate Shreddies Parks Tennis Camps – with its low cost subsidised programme (for example a child can enjoy Shreddies Parks Tennis Camps for the full month of July for no more than €30) is a great way of spending July – outdoors, learning a sport and staying healthy.
Shreddies Parks Tennis Camps are a nationwide tennis coaching program aimed at girls and boys from 6-17 years of age. It caters for beginners and improvers during its spring, summer and autumn programs. Shreddies have sponsored Parks Tennis because it is providing young enthusiasts with the opportunity to keep active and healthy, and boost their tennis skills. Top tennis coaches will coach children throughout the summer months in locations across the country.
When Dublin Parks was launched in 1977 it involved 700 children aged 6-17 years, who participated in a six-week program during July and August. Shreddies Parks Tennis Camps operates in 160 venues, in 29 counties nationwide. An amazing 25,000 children participated during the winter and summer programs. Approximately 8,400 tennis balls are used annually in the program and for those that don’t have a tennis racket or tennis balls… don’t worry as equipment is provided!
There are 350 tennis coaches involved in Shreddies Parks Tennis, Liam Cassidy who has been a Parks Tennis coach for over ten years said “It doesn’t matter what level of skill a child might have when they start the programme they all have a greater understanding of how much fun tennis can be and a firm grounding in the fundamentals of the game having made new friends and learned the game in a fun environment, who is to say that this year we might have a budding Rafa Nadal or Serena William in our midst!”
