Description

Saturday Sessions:

York Disability Tennis Network is a not for profit organisation, started in April 2014 by Andy Crockett and Jill King with help from the Tennis Foundation and City of York Council. It provides specialist disability sessions for those who wish to play socially or compete within disability specific tournaments. This includes Blind Tennis, Deaf Tennis, Learning Disability Tennis (in conjunction with Special Olympics City Of York SOCOY) and Wheelchair Tennis at a number of venues around York.

York Disability Tennis Network is part of the Me2 campaign run by the National Deaf Children’s Society (NDCS), and are now listed within their website and literature as a Deaf Friendly organisation. Both Jill and Andy are studying online for their Level 1 Certificate in British Sign Language.

Jill and Andy have also completed a course on Autism Awareness to enable a greater understanding of the Autism Spectrum. We also have direct contact with the GB National Coach in both Deaf and Special Olympics Tennis and are gaining experience in Wheelchair Tennis.

We currently run sessions at David Lloyd, Wigginton Tennis Club and Joseph Rowntree School. If you would like something organising near you in the North Yorkshire Area please contact us and we will do our utmost to meet your requirements.

Additonal session details can be found on the website.
