BARNSLEY College sport students have taken part in a five-week tennis leader course in partnership with professional coaches from the Lawn Tennis Association.

The course enabled students to adapt the game to give young people with a disability the chance to play and compete in the course.

It provided sport students with the opportunity to work with young disabled people and provided the invaluable hands-on experience of being involved in a sporting event.

Alice Robson, head coach at the Lawn Tennis Association, said: “It has been a pleasure working with Barnsley College students.

“They have taken on feedback well and applied themselves to developing their skills.

“It was fantastic to see how they adapted the session to give students with learning disabilities the most success and gain enjoyment out of the session.”
