ENJOY TENNIS is the Tennis Ireland programme for players with a disability to learn and enjoy playing tennis in clubs around Ireland. It began in 2015 and was developed by Tennis Ireland following research which showed that players with a disability typically had no access to tennis as a sport.  

"It was a great session with all the guys playing tennis together. Tennis is a great  social sport and is played all around the world so it is great sport to work with all groups. Thank you  Tennis Ireland for  their continued support to St. Michael's House. We really  enjoyed the tennis sessions  respite camps ". said Sarah Hewitt, St. Michael's House Leisure Centre Manager.

Our group enjoyed the active sessions and developed their tennis skills individually and as a group. The camps provide social interaction and inclusion for all.
