Message for Parents from Dublin Parks Tennis

Dublin Parks remains committed to finding a solution which will enable it to complete its programmes for 2020 and beyond.

This will be carried out in accord with preventive measures undertaken by the Government and HSE, the National Governing Body, and those taken by virtually every sports organisation worldwide.

It is currently doing all in its power to prepare for future outcomes, and its position in relation to all the above matters is in continuous review.

Our website and Facebook will be updated on a continuous basis.

Rob’s Home Tennis Drills

Would you like to stay active and hone your children’s, and also your own, tennis skills during these unprecedented times?

The Programme Director of Dublin Parks Tennis wishes to make you aware of some tennis activities that can be completed at home and should help lighten the mood.

These have been compiled by Rob Cherry, one of the country’s foremost coaches. Not only will they be of interest to your children, but you also can try your hand. By the way, we don’t expect you to connect with the targets every time as Rob does, and please mind the furniture.

These videos are named ‘Home Tennis Drills’ and can be found on Rob’s YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC291p9UAHRmSD_jdEsgWCgw
