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

InspiringHK has provided a great platform and opportunity for me to teach tennis to underprivileged youth. This is the first charity group that I am helping, and I feel very good that I am contributing to the community. For most of my students, tennis and golf go hand to hand, and are tools for adapting to the business world. For this class, I hope students can develop a genuine passion for tennis, and will be able to play it for the rest of their lives.

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.
