Schools Tennis

We have a school competition framework in Yorkshire for primary and secondary schools. The framework is run at local and area level and provides opportunities for all standards and all schools. The Schools Tennis competition ‘offer’ has being realigned to fit the new School Games structure, which is central to the Government’s new strategy for PE and School Sport. The below overview explains our priority formats for Yorkshire.
