Research by One Poll on behalf of Pharmaton Active Life found that over three quarters (78%) of parents would like to encourage their children to try a new sport, whilst 40% feel they could do more to encourage their children to be active. Parents felt health improvements, learning discipline and understanding a better sense of teamwork were the key benefits of children doing more exercise. The same research found that 37% of parents admit to feeling tired every day. In response to this Pharmaton has launched a 30-day challenge aimed at encouraging parents to be proactive about tiredness and energy levels. Pharmaton Active life helps sustain energy levels when taken every day (Vit B12 and iron help support normal energy yielding metabolism).
Pharmaton Active Life, the official multivitamin and minerals of British Tennis have teamed up with British Tennis and Aegon Davis Cup captain Leon Smith to launch the Ready to Play campaign, which aims to encourage parents to get their children into tennis.
As part of the campaign, Leon Smith has filmed a series of 12 short videos that introduce simple games for parents to play with their children. The fun and engaging videos aim to give parents the ideas and inspiration to teach their kids the basic skills needed for tennis, such as hand-eye coordination, accuracy and ball control. The games require minimal time and equipment, can easily be done at home, and can be adjusted to suite different ages and abilities.
Leon Smith says: “Britain winning the Davis Cup for the first time since 1936 is a fantastic launch-pad to get more people interested in playing tennis. This campaign focuses at grassroots level and will, I hope, help arm parents with the knowledge and confidence they need to teach their children important skills for tennis and beyond. I also hope it will encourage parents to spend valuable time playing with their children - as a dad of three, I know it can be tricky to find the time but incredibly rewarding and beneficial when you do.”
