What makes Padder Tennis so much fun for everyone?
Padder Tennis requires a shorter learning curve to gain confidence and the skills required compared to other racquet sports.
It's fast, and competitive and allows all the tamariki a chance to get involved whether playing or cheering on their mates at the side of the courts.
Here's Jason, the principal at Tairangi School in Porirua. Let's hear about his and one of his teachers' experiences playing Padder Tennis when they went to primary school!

Learning to play in the wind and allowing each serve to bounce before hitting the ball back are both valuable lessons to overcome when learning to play competitively.
What Teachers & Kids Say
"Padder Tennis is close to being our all-time favourite game at Halcombe School. Kids bring their own homemade bats to school and the break time battles are epic! We also have an inter-house competition where the senior students battle it out. Lots of staff play too!!”
