Cagney Tennis Academy: Professional and Fun Kids Lessons

Have you ever considered getting your kids lessons in tennis? Getting the children out of the house and engaging in some good old-fashioned physically challenging activities is not easy in this modern world ruled by technology. We’ve found that, given the right circumstances, your kids will not only enjoy learning and playing tennis, but they are also likely to thrive in other areas of their lives because of it.

We’ve been offering professional kids tennis coaching in Lakelands and surrounding suburbs for the better part of 30 years now, growing from a single coach at a single venue in 1992 to more than ten professional coaches working across five tennis venues in and around the Lakelands area. We’ve taught thousands of kids tennis over the years, with many of them achieving significant success as professional tennis players both locally and nationally.

The Benefits of Kids Tennis Coaching

Playing tennis holds many developmental benefits for your kids. At the very least, you can be sure that your child will be in peak physical condition and get lots of healthy exercise, excellent for heart and vascular strength. Proper exercise has been proven to significantly reduce the risk of developing osteoporosis later on in life.

  • In addition to fitness, tennis helps develop fine and gross motor skills and improves agility, balance, hand-eye coordination, flexibility, and speed. Increased levels of fitness also help strengthen your child’s immune system, making them more resistant to common ailments like the flu.
  • Tennis not only helps children with their physical development but holds many benefits in terms of your child’s mental development. It also aids in your child’s cognitive and mental development in problem-solving, increasing their ability to handle stress, and thus increasing their self-confidence and resilience.
  • The ongoing Covid-19 pandemic has resulted in a massive reduction in social activity worldwide, and Australia is no exception. Kids tennis provides a healthy opportunity to engage in a social activity through sport.
