NDIS Member Success Stories
How Jenny progressed from driveway tennis lessons to centre court and coach!
Jenny (not her real name) has Autism, Cerebral Palsy and is selectively mute. When Jenny first signed up with Slamin, we set the lesson up in her driveway – a familiar and comfortable space. Jenny slowly gained her confidence with tennis and her Slamin coach, and attended a small group lesson! Over time Jenny began to rally quite well, so we encouraged her to enter a PWII Tournament – and to her absolute credit – she did! Jenny is currently a trainee assistant coach at Slamin.
Game set match for Peter’s mental and physical wellbeing
Peter (not his real name) has Non Verbal Autism, makes loud happy sounds, repeats his favourite words, and physically ‘flaps’ his arms. This can be intimidating for others, and causes Peter to feel excluded in mainstream situations. Slamin Tennis and the Doncaster Tennis Club are totally inclusive places, and immediately welcomed Peter as a valued member of our Club. He attends his Advantage Autism tennis sessions with enthusiasm and inspires others. Tennis has also helped Peter lose a considerable amount of weight, which has aided his physical health and mental wellbeing.
Game, set match for this loveable teenager’s self esteem!
Michael (not his real name) has Autism, and once struggled with communication, strength, coordination and feelings of isolation. Michael joined our Advantage Autism private and group lessons. Michael took recovery breaks during his sessions, then slowly built up his physical capacity. The tennis language enabled Michael to have a common interest with peers, and his friendships with others developed. Michael is now one of the most popular members in his team of other teenagers, and has strong self esteem and strong friendships outside of school.
SLAMIN TENNIS IS COVID SAFE
