About Topspin Monkeys
Topspin Monkeys aims to create a fun and positive learning experience so children develop emotionally, physically and socially for everyday life.
Using specially adapted tennis equipment, sessions include a series of activities and games which focus on the three areas of skill development in order to play tennis. They are Movement Skills, Ball Skills (improving hand eye coordination) and Racket Skills. Tennis incorporates striking, catching, throwing and running which helps improve skills in other sports.
In addition, children learn to listen to instructions whilst having fun and learning. We also use colours, numbers, shapes and letters to help with their educational development so they feel better prepared for primary school and for life.
Children experience the importance of sportsmanship and fair play. They are encouraged to give high fives and shake hands whether they win or lose, but also to give their best at all times. Social skills are developed through the child sharing and allowing others to have their turn.
Above all, our sessions provide an opportunity for parent/carer and child to interact through a fun environment which in today’s busy lifestyle is so important. Tennis is a sport where children and parents can play and learn together which encourages fitness and enjoyment for all.
