Join in the Wimbledon fever!
With Wimbledon underway, we have tennis on the brain and hope you do too! We want everyone to get involved in tennis so we are holding FREE tennis sessions at our Ipswich HQ on Lindbergh Road for 6 to 14 year olds.
These will be held on Tuesdays from 5.30 until 6.30pm starting this Tuesday on 5th July with the aim to provide accessible sport sessions and keep local children active.
During the six weeks of the ‘turn up and play’ programme, the children will be taking part in fun skill-based activities to learn the techniques of tennis.
Suffolk Community Foundation have kindly funded the sessions from their Stimulus Fund set up by the Suffolk Lawn Tennis Association (SLTA) to provide the opportunity to play tennis to those who have not had the chance before.
Our Head Coach Sam Warnes who will be leading the sessions says:
“We are really excited for the sessions to start, giving the opportunity for more young people to play tennis, including some who have not had the chance to play before. We are very into Wimbledon and are hoping the excitement will transfer into our tennis sessions.”
If you are wanting to get involved with tennis aside from our ‘turn up and play’ sessions, then we also have 3 tennis courts available for hire at our Ipswich base. Please enquire for our availability on 01473 353 194 or email [email protected].
