TFF Session


How the TFF Sessions are delivered

The TFF Sessions, run at our participating public facilities, welcome all members of the local community from children as young as 3yrs to our oldest to date at 84yrs. The sessions are family oriented meaning that there's something for everyone and the sessions are split into sub groups to accommodate the differing standards. As the sub-groups are standard based, we don't label them according to age, rather 'Parent & Child Group', 'Beginner Groups, 'Improvers+ Group'.

The drills and games we use in these sub-groups can be seen as follows:

Each TFF session is 1.5 hours in the length with the first hour delivered by a team of coaches/assistants and the second 1/2 hour as Open Play.

The format of the TFF Scheme can be seen below:


Hour 1 = Coach Led Session

The Coach Led session is typically run by local coaches (although no coaching is featured within the sessions), coach assistants and members of the local community in many cases. They will deliver a fun drills and games based session. 







1/2 Hour Extra - Open Play Session

The Open Play session follows on from the coach delivered first hour. One of the coaching team will stay on for the second 1/2 hour in a supporting role. On the Improvers+ Open Play session, the coach will likely set up an initial drill/game (usually TFF Quick Fire) and allow the members of the community to take on the session. The Parent & Child Open Play session is simply an unsupervised court with the various equipment (balls, racquets, mini nets, training aids..etc) left out to allow Parents & their child(ren) to play amongst themselves.




The TFF scheme is delivered as part of a Service Level Agreement (SLA) with TFF, the Tennis Provider and the local authority. If you're interested in delivering the TFF programme on a set of public park courts, you can view the Understanding TFF document or a short Q&A document to understand the scheme in more detail.
