Anyone for tennis?

Short tennis classes start for children and young people at leisure@cheltenham this Thursday 17 September.

Run by a qualified tennis coach, the sessions help to improve tennis skills in a fun and friendly environment.

The classes run until 19 November and cost 3 per session or 25 for the ten week block. Children from ages 5 to 7 play from 4pm to 5pm; and ages 8 to 11 play from 5pm to 6pm.

Tom Sparks, activity co-ordinator for leisure@cheltenham, said: "We are delighted to be able to offer short tennis courses here at leisure@cheltenham. With winter approaching it's a great opportunity for children to carry on playing tennis and learn new skills in a safe, indoor environment with a qualified tennis coach."

Councillor Andrew McKinlay, cabinet member for sport and culture, said: "These courses are a great way for children to get fit whilst having a lot of fun."
