‘Tennis for Free’ is serving up an ace day out!

Published: 28 September 2020

From: Community

Community sports charity, Tennis for Free, is returning to Maidenbower Park, offering residents the chance to learn a new skill, improve their fitness and mental wellbeing during the Covid-19 pandemic, completely for free!

Tennis for Free is a community sports charity that provides an ace day out including free coach-led tennis sessions and access to tennis courts in local parks around the UK, for all members of the community.

Last year, Tennis for Free hosted an impressive 514 community members who took part in weekly sessions from July to November 2019. This year, due to the pandemic, the sessions will initially be for over 12s only.

The coach-led sessions are one of several similar schemes in the south east, and will be returning every Sunday, starting on Sunday 4 October from 9-10am at Maidenbower Park.

All equipment is provided free of charge and people of all ages and abilities are welcome. Come along, get active and have fun!

What a great opportunity to socialise in an exciting and safe way at the same time as playing sport and getting active.  This is an important event for many families and individuals who have struggled throughout the pandemic and is a chance to relax and have fun.
