What a great session.
It was so nice to travel up to the North East to deliver a LÜSÜ Inclusive PE teacher training course to twenty two really lovely teachers.

The school is a fabulous little school, run by my very good friend and long term camping buddy Maria , who has a fantastic team working with her.
We’ve had a great week delivering on LTA Tennis courses.
Monday saw us go to Nottingham Tennis Centre to deliver the L4 inclusion CPD – a focus on neurodiverse and long term health conditions.

Then up to Leeds Beckett University for more DAC delivery on their Level 3 course.
Love working with the coaches and tutors.
We are so proud of the collaboration with the LTA Coach Development to produce these CPD courses as part of the coaches L3 and L4 qualifications.
It was such a priviledge joining the coaching team and players for the LTA’s first Parastanding Tennis Festival at the National Tennis Centre Club with fabulous energy on court, creating an atmosphere to be proud of.
From the beginners to the World level players, a day in history, well done to all.
