The Daniel Nestor Tennis Centre (DNTC) has been visiting schools throughout HRM for the past 5 years. We have taught at elementary, junior high and high school locations with programming that is designed by Tennis Canada and the Professional Tennis Registry. All of our instructors are full time professionals teaching all levels of tennis.

To overcome sport participation barriers to students the Daniel Nestor Tennis Centre has created a school program for any school in promoting physical activity through tennis. By improving the health of our youth now we have a greater chance of producing healthier, active adults in the future. The DNTC encourages and rewards participation in school sports across the province and strives to promote healthy active living among students giving them access to tennis.

This initiative meets the needs of the schools and offers new activities to physical education teachers who want to add variety to their program. Classrooms are full of kids who play the mainstream sports. The Daniel Nestor Tennis Centre is all about introducing the game of tennis as a lifelong sport. As kids see the value of playing tennis the option of pathways to university become a reality.

Have a Tennis Pro Visit your school. We suggest you try these steps.

1) One of our Tennis Professionals will visit your school for a full or half day. We will work with the Physical Education teacher for the day so the majority of students get introduced to Tennis. We provide all necessary equipment: racquets, nets, balls.
Full Day - $280
Half Day - $180 

2) Once your students have experienced a day of Tennis you may want to offer a lunch or after school program. We recommend 4-6 sessions. Once complete many of the students will be ready to enroll in one of the many programs at DNTC.

3) Rookie Tours (Mini Tournament) introduce players to tournament style play in a fun and friendly environment. 
$10 per player.

After a successful school visit, we recommend the school purchase it's own equipment to continue exposing players to tennis. We provide an easy to follow curriculum for the Physical Education teachers to run their own programs! All gear is discount pricing through the Atlantic Tennis Professionals eStore.
