Tennis is known as one of the four noble sports.  Originating from the royalties in France, it had many strict rules on equipment, clothing and form  etc. In early times, the referees would even judge on players’ posture, body shape and deportment.
We hope students’ learn not only the skills of tennis, but also a positive attitude of always pursuing for their dreams.

Sharing & Feedback

This is a great opportunity for underprivileged children to experience a great sport like tennis.  The students have improved a lot with their technical and teamwork skills and developed a sense of responsibility.

As coaches we hope that their technical skills will continue on a positive trajectory, but at the same time it is important that they enjoy the class. We hope that they will compete for Hong Kong one day. I am grateful to the title sponsor and InspiringHK for giving the opportunity to teach this class.

Chi Cheung had always wanted to learn tennis before joining this course. He was easily mesmerised by tennis matches on TV, and to make him happy I bought a racket for him. Not being able to afford joining a course, his only way to learn was playing tennis against a wall. I am very thankful to InspiringHK for accepting Chi Cheung into this class. In only 2 and a half months, he has already learnt a lot. His goal is to play like the athletes on TV. I know he will cherish this learning opportunity.
