Yesterday, Sue delivered a training session to the local Community Group Coaches. These coaches deliver to disability adults and juniors in there communities.
What a great session.
Over the past few days LUSU Sports has been training Access Sport and LTA coaches in Sensory Sports, Visually Impaired sports, wheelchair sports and Learning Difficulties in young adults and children.
Sensory tennis revolutionizes the sporting experience, particularly for individuals with complex disabilities, by providing a unique and inclusive approach to the game. Through a combination of modified equipment, specialised coaching techniques, and tailored sensory stimuli, sensory tennis creates an environment where participants of all abilities can fully engage and enjoy the sport.
By incorporating elements such as auditory cues, tactile feedback, and visual aids, individuals with complex disabilities are empowered to explore and develop their tennis skills in a way that suits their specific needs and preferences. This innovative approach not only fosters physical activity and motor skill development but also promotes social interaction, confidence-building, and a sense of accomplishment.
Sensory tennis opens doors to new possibilities and ensures that everyone, regardless of their abilities, can experience the thrill of playing tennis and the joy of being part of a vibrant sporting community.

Tango is back!!! Yes, after a few months of hibernation, Tango feels it’s cold enough to get back on his travels.

From the beginners to the World level players, a day in history, well done to all.
