Looking to capitalise on the tennis fever, 10am Sunday 17th May will
see the launch of 2 hours of free weekly coach led tennis sessions that will be
available year round at Bellfield Park in Inverness. The free weekly sessions have been made possible by a partnership with Inverness tennis Academy, Tennis Scotland and the Tennis For Free Charity.
Tennis For Free is a registered charity founded by comedian Tony Hawks. Supported by Sport England and the LTA and with high profile Patrons such as Stephen Fry and Judy Murray, the charity aims to create healthy, vibrant tennis communities on FREE public park tennis courts. The scheme in Inverness is also supported by a wider coaching programme delivered by Inverness Tennis Academy. Those looking for a private game of tennis can book a court online at www.bellfieldpark.com or target free access court times at various slots across the week.
Tennis For Free’s CEO Paul Jessop commented, "We're looking forward to working with the lead coach Mike Martin and Inverness Tennis Academy in sparking a new wave of tennis interest into Inverness and getting people of all ages partaking in some enjoyable and healthy activity. There are times when people can come and get coaching free, times when the courts are free for a casual game and a variety of low cost tennis coaching sessions and low cost bookable courts – there's something for everyone!!"
Those interested in attending the free sessions will need to sign up at www.bellfieldpark.com where more details about the tennis at the Bellfield Park can be found. For more information about Tennis For Free, visit the charity’s website http://www.tennisforfree.com/
