A protracted COVID-19 pandemic has, to some extent, changed the way each of us lives. There have also been some changes in our tendency to choose after-school interest classes for our children. Outdoor sports are considered by more people as the first choice for exercising and enhancing physical fitness. You can see it through our popular golf lessons program.
In order to allow the majority of young people to have more opportunities to contact professional non-team competitive sports outdoor projects, after nearly a semester of research and negotiation, Univision has joined hands with the century-old Ngatira Tennis Club and Sparta Tennis Academy. Mt Eden in central Auckland offers community tennis courses for youth.
