Ten Project returns to schools and communities
As pupils begin to return to school following the Covid-19 lockdown, Ten Project are delighted to announce that they will be resuming delivery of both their School and Community projects.
Ten Project was set to deliver it’s family initiative to a number of primary schools and communities within London before the Covid-19 lockdown, as well as continuing to launch their stand alone FREE Community Family Sessions. Despite having to postpone both, Ten Project has spent the summer working on it’s existing online video content of fun family orientated tennis based activities that can be done easily at home or in the park. Alongside the video content Ten Project have also developed some educational content for teachers and parents so they can continue to give children the opportunity to LEARN. PLAY. TOGETHER.
The initiative, both in school and at local community tennis courts, has been adapted in accordance with both government and the national governing body guidelines, meaning that all sessions will be delivered in a safe environment making sure all children and parents continue to have fun while being active.
Ten Project encourages families to be part of the whole ten week school initiative; from children taking part in school, to families then coming to their local community tennis courts at the weekend where they are invited to be part of free parent/child sessions. Despite having to limit the numbers of families attending the weekend sessions, there are other options for schools and families who are unable at this time to be fully part of Ten Project.
Schools and families are able to be part of Ten Project in a number of ways:
At School with Ten Project - Coaches will deliver sessions in school, supported by the class teacher
At Local Community Tennis Court - Coaches will deliver a FREE weekly session at the weekend for all families involved in the school initiative. These sessions are limited to maximum numbers depending on the number of courts due to Covid-19 regulations.
As a family at Home, In the Park or at your Local Community Court - If families are unable to attend the weekend sessions due to the restriction in numbers allowed, Ten Project offers a wealth of online resources and video content to make sure families can still LEARN. PLAY. TOGETHER.
FREE Community Family Sessions - supported by local authority and our community tennis court partners, Ten Project offers free stand alone weekend family sessions that can be attended by all local families in the area. These sessions are currently limited to maximum numbers, depending on court size, due to Covid-19 regulations.
Talking about the restart of Ten Project, Founder & CEO Harry Lloyd said, “We’re incredibly excited to be resuming delivery of our School and Community projects. We know how important and vital outdoor physical activity is for the health and well-being of so many families, even more so at this current time. Our sessions were extremely popular before lockdown so we can’t wait to open up these sessions again. We have had to adapt our sessions, however this won’t prevent us providing the opportunity for children and families to get active and learn, play, together in a fun and safe environment.”
"We're very appreciative of the support we have received from our partners at Park Tennis in Kingston, Active Kingston, NewBallsPlease, local school and community organisations and the many more supporters who have allowed us to continue doing the work that we do."
