Tennis is a very popular extra-curricular activity at St Ives with over half of our children taking tennis lessons. Tennis is taught by our resident coach, Julia Bowker, an LTA Accredited and PTR Qualified coach.
As a Junior, Julia represented her county regionally and nationally and has been involved with the coaching of adults and juniors since she was 16. Julia joined St Ives in September 2019 and is already proving incredibly popular with pupils. She is re-energising the tennis curriculum through her belief in making tennis lessons as fun and interactive as possible. Julia believes that when a child is happy, they develop confidence, which in turn that helps them grow into a great tennis player!
Tennis lessons are for children in Nursery up to Year 6.
