    Talking tennis after school activity? be aware run by actors!

    i was appalled to find this job advert today in seek, and had to share this to other hardworking parents..

    Remar Tennis Acting OpportunityRemar Holdings Pty ltd on 7 Jun Brisbane Advertising, Arts & Media - Performing Art Casual/Vacation $20/hr for all work (direct and related)

    Calling all budding actors,

    We are looking for an exceptional actor who can follow a script and perform for kids aged 3-10 years.

    This actor needs to have confidence, needs to be able to rehearse, will have to learn a 30 min activity session, and will need to be loud and exciting.

    The successful actor will be running tennis games in school P.E lessons. They will have 30mins to excite and amaze the class. Classes will have 25 students and run for 30min sessions over multiple classes, possibly back to back. The session will have to be fun, tennis based, and we will have prizes and enrollment forms to hand out at the end of the session.

    No tennis back ground or skill is needed at all. All games will be taught to the successful applicant and rehearsed over and again.

    The full 30 min session will be rehearsed and the successful applicant will have to perform this session live before being given classes to perform to.

    The other main Job the actor may be required to do is rehearse and deliver a 3 min tennis performance in front of a school. Again full script and training will be given. All rehearsals and any relevant work will be paid for.

    We are looking for someone on a casual/part-time basis. If they are great, this can be ongoing. $20 per hour for all work carried out.

    The way I'm reading it is that it is just to get kids excited about tennis, not actually teaching the kids to play. I don't know. Maybe I'm reading it wrong.

    I'm reading that too.. I'm guessing they play some tennis training games with the kids, but what they're looking for is enthusiasm & someone to get kids excited about tennis (obviously so they want to sign up to tennis lessons which would be with someone with actual skills!)

    It sounds like a good advertising strategy! Clever of the company & I wouldn't be concerned about it at all.

    Yeah, part of the ad says they will be handing out enrolment forms, I'm guessing the actor goes into the school as a one off to try and get kids to enrol in tennis lessons run by proper coaches. They are just advertising it really.

    I stumbled across this post by accident, you actually have it spot on I know the owners of the company and they just want someone who is able to be flexible and creative in their sessions with the children and engage the children's interest
