This thesis tries to analyse physical education, especially tennis, within the new upper school system in Austria. This system is based on courses, or rather modules, that can be offered at high schools in the future. The aim is to create a structured lesson plan on how a tennis specific module could be realized. Therefore, a raster of eight lessons is compiled, which could be adapted by teachers in Austrian schools. The module is developed in reference to theoretical deliberations about the module system and relevant aspects of the tennis sport. Furthermore, it considers didactical, methodological and organisational questions and possible forms of appraisement. Summing up, the module system seems to have a real positive influence on scholastic physical education: Unusual types of sports, which had only rarely been provided at school before, can be offered in courses now and pupils can decide on their own which sports they would like to take. Especially sports like tennis can be simply trained through modules and under the guidance of professional teachers. In addition, due to the opportunity to choose courses on their own, children might show higher levels of motivation, which should have positive effects on the individual learning process.
