Families can sign up for free tennis sessions at the Hollybush Tennis Centre in Sevenoaks on Wednesday evenings. The tennis taster sessions are ideal for people with little or no experience of playing tennis who are keen to try out the sport. Don’t wait for Wimbledon (June 28) to spike your interest, it will be too late.
The free offer includes court hire, tennis rackets and tennis balls. Professional coaches from the John Heuerman Tennis Academy will be on hand to offer help and advice.
Family groups of between two and five can book on the course. The one-hour sessions run on Wednesdays from 6.30pm to 8.30pm from tomorrow (June 9) to 28 July. To book a slot, residents (Sevenoaks District only) should visit www.sevenoaks.gov.uk/tennis.
Cllr Lesley Dyball, the council’s cabinet member for People and Places says: “With the longer evenings, now is a great time to try out tennis. Many people may feel tennis is an expensive, exclusive activity, but this could not be further from the truth. These free sessions will give 12 families the chance to try out tennis in a fun and supportive environment.
“But if you’re keen join, the ball is in your court: places are available on a first-come, first-served (no pun intended) basis, so I would urge anyone who is interested to sign up soon as possible.”
Under 16-year-olds must be accompanied an adult. Other terms and conditions apply.
