In 2012, the Stratford Tennis Club partnered with the Ontario Tennis Association ( OTA ), to provide free demonstrations of Progressive Tennis in a number of schools in Stratford. These included Bedford , St. Ambrose, Jeanne Sauve, St. Joseph’s, Anne Hathaway, St. Aloysius, Avon, and Hamlet Public Schools. Over 1500 students received instruction in Progressive Tennis, using the light, short racquets, the soft, over sized balls and the smaller nets, which are all key components of the program. Joel Imamovic, an OTA Nationally Certified Coach, led the workshops. The demonstration days were a huge success and there was positive feedback from both students and educators alike.
The Stratford Tennis Club is pleased to offer two instructional programs to educators in 2017 . Program One will be available from April to June. Program Two is available only in May and June. A brief summary of each program is outlined below.
