EBAT Free Schools Programme (Broke Hall Community Primary School)
Elena Baltacha Academy of Tennis
Free Schools Programme 2015
The Free Schools Programme is Elena & Nino’s initiative, and designed to take tennis back into the community in order to deliver tennis to every child at the schools which Elena’s Academy visit. Each child is then offered an opportunity to participate in this wonderful sport for free at Elena’s Academy for 3 weekend training sessions. Elena wanted to create more opportunities, in the hope that this will inspire more children to participate in sport, regardless of their ability.
Broke Hall Community Primary School
Phase 1 of the 2015 Free Schools Programme started in February, with the EBAT team visiting Broke Hall Community Primary School here in Ipswich between 2 – 6 February.
With 3 classes per year, plus a couple of Reception classes, made for a busy week as the team delivered free tennis to 600 children.
The response was amazing with just over 120 children signing up to attend the free weekend training sessions. It’s an amazing project to be involved in, and all made possible by the vision of Elena & Nino.
