Premiers Active April
Get Into Cardio Tennis has taken Victoria by storm, and during Premier’s Active April, you have the chance to trial the program for free.
Get Into Cardio Tennis is a new physical activity program developed by Tennis Victoria in partnership with Tennis Australia and funded by VicHealth. It’s fun, social and a low-impact movement session. Over 45 minutes you’ll do a warm up, a series of game-based activities using racquets and balls and a cool down.
‘The great thing about this program, is that it’s done in local parks, so you can get your physical activity in near home and with friends who live locally.’
– Tam Harding, Tennis Victoria
The program is designed at an introductory level, so you don’t need any existing tennis skills or fitness level to enjoy a session.
Get Into Cardio Tennis will appeal to people who might not have done a lot of physical activity in the past, or are returning after some time out. It can also be a great stepping stone into the sport.
‘The thing I love about Get Into Cardio Tennis is that you may never have played the sport of tennis before but it’s a way of getting involved and learning some of the skills.’
– Alicia Molik, Former Australian Professional Tennis Player
The program is funded by VicHealth through their Changing the Game Campaign, which is working in particular to encourage more women to participate in physical activity across Victoria but anyone, male or female, over the age of 15 can give it a go.
A 45-minute class costs $10 and you can register at Get Into Cardio Tennis. Choose the ‘free introductory class’ option in ticket type when you sign up to get your first session free as part of your Premier’s Active April registration.
