TENNIS: The perfect time to pick up a racket

First published in Sport

FAMILIES can take part in a variety of free activities at the next Great British Tennis Weekend on June 21-22.

Participating parks and clubs will be offering you the opportunity to pick up a racket as tennis fever is about to grip the nation with Wimbledon on the horizon.

It is all part of the LTA and Tennis Foundation’s drive to get more people playing the game more often.

Venues will provide rackets and balls and there no limits to ability, age or experience.

There will be two more Great British Tennis Weekends on June 28-29 and July 19-20.

You can book in advance online and find out more information about local venues at
