Tennis: Geography In Action

This booklet introduces students to the global links within sports, specifically tennis. Wimbledon is studied in reference to where food and drink are sourced and how its 2013 ‘Master Plan’, launched in 2013, aims to make the competition more sustainable, from reducing landfill waste, advertising recyclable bottles, serving vegan options and reducing the tennis balls air miles! How tennis balls are made, and by whom, is looked at in addition to Wimbledon working with Water Aid and tennis as an economic activity. The unit concludes with the students designing a logo and brand for their school’s tennis competition.

A range of individual and group activities are incorporated within this booklet, including, gathering research from print and video, drawing a story board, annotating maps, their thoughts, and ideas, drawing graphs and completing choropleth maps.

Willson Education

Hi, I'm a Geography teacher with experience educating at various levels across the south of England, ranging from mainstream schools, SEN and extra-curricular tuition. I also have experience in teaching Humanities, English and PSHE topics, as well as having worked as a cover supervisor and an exams invigilator. I've also had the chance whist studying and practising Geography to visit some fabulous locations around the world such as the Sahara Dessert, the American Heartland for my dissertation and Germany as part of my degree study programme. All of my experiences so far have added to my passion for the subject and I continue to produce and edit educational material today with a view to passing on my enthusiasm for the subject as well as inspiring new Geographers.
