Have fun, get fit play tennis

Wednesday, June 12, 2013

Local MP Meg Munn recently met people involved in tennis, and sport generally, at Graves Leisure centre to discuss a programme of activity they are jointly developing to encourage more people to play tennis.  Meg is particularly keen to see more children, young people and families play and dispel the myth that tennis is an elitist sport which costs a lot to play, and you have to be up to Wimbledon standards to enjoy it. 

The initiative will see more tennis facilities across the City and an advertising campaign to show it is a good way to have fun at any age. Those involved include the Lawn Tennis Association (LTA), Activity Sheffield, South Yorkshire Sport and Sheffield International Venues.

Meg said:

“It is great to see schools, universities and community groups being encouraged to join us in getting fit and playing this great sport - be it serious competition; cardio tennis for keep fit; short tennis for families, played on the badminton court with a big red ball; wheelchair tennis; or simply knocking a ball about and having fun in the local park.

I love playing tennis, it really is not an expensive sport and there are so many different varieties that are designed to meet everyone’s need whatever your age and level of fitness. I am delighted to be involved and offer my support”
