Follow up Wimbledon high with family tennis taster session in Gladstone Park

Andy Murray’s Wimbledon win will have sent many reaching for their tennis racquets, so it’s perfect timing for a family taster session on Sunday.

The Lawn Tennis Association (LTA) and the Tennis Foundation has been offering practice sessions for complete novices or for people who have only played a little.

And the latest opportunity is at Gladstone Park from 10am to 11.30am.

The sessions cost £3 per family and are suitable for all ages.

They are not formal coaching sessions but provide a perfect opportunity for people to get involved as a family.

The balls provided are slower and easier to hit than a normal tennis ball so anyone can play.

Rob Dearing of the LTA’s participation team said: “Equipment will be available at each park site and coaches will be on hand to give advice so we hope that people will take up this offer and have some quality family time together on court. Tennis is a game for everyone, whatever their age, ability or sex.
