Thank You Enjoy Tennis Ireland for a great day at Shankhill Tennis Club. LUSU had a fabulous time on court being able to share our knowledge & ideas and showcase our LUSUKIT to VI players and coaches.
The day started with an on court VI Performance Players and coaches clinic. Followed by an afternoon workshop on teaching players with Learning Disabilities - on and off the court. The coaches were full of energy, an open and creative mindset and it was excellent to share ideas and reinforce how physical activity can improve well being for the player, their families, and can enhance life skills for everyday tasks. We made some lovely new friends and will keep in touch.

"Thank you to all the coaches, volunteers and organizers who attended a great Workshop on Blind Tennis and ID tennis yesterday at Shankill Tennis Club. The Workshop was delivered by Louise Assioun and Sue Morrison of Lusu Sports (http://lususports.com). Louise and Sue did a great job in helping those involved with Enjoy Tennis to deepen our understanding of the challenges and solutions involved when teaching the game to players with a disability. The Workshop kicked off with a session for some of Ireland’s top visually impaired players and their coaches, before broadening out to work in the area of Intellectual Disability. Thanks to Lusu Sports and also to Shankill LTC for the use of their marvellous indoor facility."
