Anyone for tennis?

As Wimbledon fever grips tennis fans across the country, Pendle Leisure Trust is launching its own competition to find the next Andy Murray by starting a tennis club for children aged six years old and above.

The Trust has already successfully held two 10-week block courses of tennis coaching at Pendle Leisure Centre in Colne. The aim was to help players improve their technique, build confidence and create somewhere in the local area for children to experience the sport.

Mark Dutton, from the Trust’s Sports Development Team, said: “This was a great experience for the children and a great way to learn a different sport.

”Following on from this success, we now want to start a tennis club for youngsters and hopefully find the next Andy Murray!”
