MoorMums says:

Tennis Tykes classes are aimed at 2-6 year olds, are 45 minutes long and take place at indoor venues ensuring that they are accessible to all. The class sizes are limited to 8 and there is a fun, play based approach with each session teaching and developing, agility, balance and co-ordination through the sport of tennis. The lessons are taken by qualified CRB checked coaches and specially adapted, brightly coloured mini tennis equipment is provided for the children to use at the sessions.

Classes are also available in Adel on Fridays.

Catherine from Menston says: “I started taking my 3 year old son to Tennis Tykes at Ilkley tennis club in January 2012. He loves it! The coach, Alan, is excellent with the children and his instructions are clear and easy for the little ones to follow. All children get individual attention from the coach at different points throughout the lesson as group numbers are small. Activities are often adapted for different levels of ability within the group. After the first couple of weeks my son was confident enough to participate in the lesson without me which allows me to sit and watch which is great as I also take along my baby. Overall would definitely recommend. ”
