Middlesex Tennis Inclusive Tennis Sessions

Supported by the LTA Open Court Programme

The Middlesex Tennis online inclusive tennis sessions have gone from strength to strength.  In only a few weeks more than 20 players are attending the Saturday morning weekly sessions.  

The coaching team of Mark Bullock, Stuart Wilkinson, Jon Wildman and Nick Jacobsen lead a fun, interactive and informative session.  Players join from all over the country. Players with a learning disability, a deaf player, visually impaired players (including some totally blind players), wheelchair tennis players, non disabled players and families coaches join the sessions.

The feedback from the sessions has been very positive. Here is a sample:

(non disabled) ‘kids have loved it. signing off for ballet class’

‘Great session we both really enjoyed it it, catch up soon’

‘Lots of focus and fun being had!’

‘Thank you - love that it still feels fresh each week - it’s giving me something to look forward to and a reason to get up early on Saturdays!’

‘Week three of #TennisAtHome Inclusive Session with Mark Bullock & Stuart Wilkinson today! Thank you Middlesex Tennis for helping so many people with disabilities and additional support needs to keep moving and keep active throughout lockdown 3.0!'

'These FREE sessions are honestly worth their weight in gold and you can sign up to take part here..’ 👉

‘Here’s some of the skills and drills we worked on in today’s #TennisAtHome Inclusive Session with Mark Bullock & Stuart Wilkinson! Thank you Middlesex Tennis for facilitating these smashing sessions- they’re fast becoming one of the highlights of my week!’

'Brill session.  Great job coaches…!! And well done everyone - really good engagement from all…'

'Another great inclusive session'

Mark Bullock said

I’m delighted with the way these sessions have gone. A big thank you to the coaching team who are very experienced in inclusive tennis and online delivery. It’s exciting to have so many coaches observing as it is a great way to increase coaches confidence of delivering inclusive sessions.
