LTA mini tennis initiative comes to Stonehaven

LTA mini tennis initiative comes to Stonehaven Arduthie Primary School has become the first one in Stonehaven to introduce mini tennis to its school playground.

Mini tennis has been the brain child of the LTA (Lawn Tennis Association) to encourage more younger children to take up the sport of tennis and follow in the footsteps of becoming the next Andy Murray.

There are 3 levels – red and the smallest court which introduces the children to tennis, orange which is the next step up and is ¾ of the size of a full court and finally green a full size court. These smaller courts use smaller balls and racquets.

Kids zone areas can be added to in a variety of colourful markings that will attract children and put the fun back into learning a new sport. These supplement the tennis courts by working on the abc's: agility, balance and coordination - providing additional fitness and skill.

Arduthie settled on 4 mini red tennis courts, 1 “3/4” orange tennis court and a kids zone including a ladder, colour spots, zig zags and red and blue balance beams lines.

Ruth Sterk who is the Mini Tennis Coordinator for the nearby Stonehaven Tennis club helped push the project to fruition and is hopeful that not only will more kids start to play tennis but other primary schools in the area will also follow the Arduthie model. She said “the LeisureTec team has been very flexible, supportive and responsive to our requests. They have sought to deliver a very high standard of workmanship, and I'm confident that the playground markings will be very well received by the kids during PE lessons, not to mention during play times.

LTS was commissioned by the school to carry out all line marking of the courts using special acrylic paint designed for tarmac surfaces and the kid zone area and are hopeful that others will follow.
