About Schools Tennis Ireland

Our aim at Schools Tennis Ireland is to increase opportunities for students in Ireland to try tennis, a healthy sport for life. Tennis is one of, if not the best sport for a person’s physical and psychological health.

We give more people the opportunity to try tennis by providing free lesson plans for primary and secondary school teachers to enable them to confidently deliver tennis in PE, and by creating opportunities for all children to access tennis through our FitHit Cyber Tennis Club, and our links with Schools Friendly Clubs & Coaches.

In Spring 2017, Schools Tennis Ireland launched ‘Tennis for Health & Wellbeing’ nationwide. The programme consists of 3 programmes:

  • FitHit Cyber Tennis Club
    • Membership of the FitHit Cyber Tennis Club costs €10 per year and  members benefits include:
      • Logbook to allow players to take part in FitHit Blitz Events held at Schools Friendly Clubs, and Parks Tennis venues across Fingal from May 2017. Blitz and team tennis series will run at schools friendly clubs across Ireland from September 2017
      • Pick an online team to represent at blitzes, festivals & tournaments and collect stamps at events to win prizes – 5 stamps = FitHit Tshirt, 10 stamps = FitHit Jumper
