From Thursday 12 May – sign up now!

Young people aged 10-14 have the opportunity to improve their tennis skills from Thursday. A ten week coaching programme taking place on Thursdays from 5.30 - 6.30pm at the Montpellier Park Tennis courts launches this week and it's not too late to sign up.

In partnership with East Glos tennis club, the council's sports development team will be giving young people the opportunity to improve their skills in a fun and friendly environment. Participants will receive coaching to improve their techniques as well as taking part in fun games. Costing £30 for the ten week course, spaces are limited.

Sports development officer, Tom Sparks said: "This is a great opportunity for any keen young people to improve their tennis skills. With Wimbledon just around the corner it's a great time to pick up a tennis racket and receive some quality coaching.''

Spaces are limited so parents are advised to pre book by contacting the sports development team on 01242 264324.
