GIYM Primary


Disadvantaged and vulnerable children aged 4-11 across the UK. 


Primary schools in disadvantaged areas. Eligible schools must meet a minimum pupil premium* percentage requirement of 35%.

* Pupil premium is funding given by the government to publicly funded schools to help improve attainment of their disadvantaged pupils. Evidence shows that children from disadvantaged backgrounds often do not perform as well as their peers. For every child that is eligible for a free school meal the government awards funding to help the school with costs to close the gap between children from low income families and their peers.


Currently, sessions are run in 16 locations across the UK, from Aberdeen in Scotland down to Folkestone on the South East coast.

The tennis coach must also be able to offer an affordable after school option in close proximity to the school to ensure that children can continue to play tennis in the community.

Our sessions focus on healthy living, self-confidence, respect, coordination and goal setting.

Children will develop basic skills of coordination, balance and agility. Through competition and play they enjoy the opportunity of securing existing friendships and making new friends. They learn the importance of team work, collaboration, respect and sportsmanship.

What people say?

There is an epidemic of inactivity, obesity and diabetes in the UK and prevention is better than cure. Give It Your Max creates sporting opportunity and promotes a healthy, active lifestyle to children from deprived areas who are most at risk, complementing the work of local authorities and the NHS in addressing this complex health burden.
