The Great British Tennis Weekend

Wednesday, August 21, 2013

Meg Munn MP was delighted to lend her support to the first ever Great British Tennis Weekend which provided free tennis at 39 park sites across the country, including Hillsborough Park in Sheffield. The events were the highlight of the Lawn Tennis Association’s (LTA) summer and autumn drive to increase participation in tennis.

People of all ages and abilities turned up to play, with equipment and coaching provided for free. Activities included Cardio Tennis a fitness inspired work out on court adult social tennis, women only sessions, LTA Mini Tennis for three to ten year olds as well as short tennis a scaled down version of the game.

Meg is an enthusiastic tennis player and has been working for several years with tennis organisations to get more people playing. She joined Paul Bennett, Yorkshire Tennis Development Officer and young volunteers at Hillsborough Park to meet those taking part and to get some coaching to improve her game.

Meg said:

“It was great to meet lots of young children who were getting to grips with a tennis racquet for the first time. With mini courts and light balls even small children can begin to enjoy the game. For adults there are now so many opportunities locally to have a go it is really never too late to learn or improve. I got the chance to improve my shots and will be trying a double handed back hand, even though I’ve been playing tennis for more than 40 years.”
