Active Stirling recently played host to an engaging tennis event tailored for primary school children, exemplifying its commitment to fostering active lifestyles for children and young people.

As an integral part of the Active Schools programme, more than 150 primary 4 pupils enthusiastically took to the courts at The PEAK, Stirling Sports Village.

The event proved to be a resounding success, with a vibrant atmosphere permeating the venue. Students from Riverside, Allan’s, Gargunnock, Fallin, Braehead, and East Plean Primary Schools revelled in a morning filled with fun, learning new skills.

The format was designed to develop key social skills such as teamwork, communication, and sportsmanship, and build confidence as they enjoyed developing skills for Tennis.

At the heart of the event's success, S3 students from Balfron High School generously lent their support to Active Stirling’s Active Schools team and Modern Apprentices, contributing significantly to the smooth execution of the event. Gratitude is extended to Tennis Scotland for their invaluable assistance in training the S3 leaders.

Thank you to all the participating primary schools and a special thanks to Balfron High for facilitating the transportation of their brilliant young leaders to The PEAK as well as their ongoing support for our programmes. Throughout the event, children engaged in six dynamic activity sessions aimed at honing their skills while having a blast. Smiles abounded as the children focused on improving hand-eye coordination, mastering racquet techniques, and honing teamwork skills through collaborative activities with their peers.
