- ANYONE FOR TENNIS?
YOUNGSTERS who think they could the next Roger Federer or Serena Williams are being the chance to serve up aces as part of the city council's award-winning Junior Tennis programme this summer.
Coaching clinics are taking place at Liverpool Tennis Centre in Wavertree every Saturday, and a programme of summer camps will operate for five hours a day during the school holidays - at half the usual cost.
The Saturday sessions cost just £1 and the summer camps cost £2 for half a day or £3 for the whole day. Mini-tennis is on offer for under 9s and junior tennis for older children aged up to 16, with youngsters from all areas of the city welcome.
Tennis Development Officer David Simms said:- "If this country is to develop world-class players we need to broaden the base of tennis as widely as possible. If we can inspire kids to pick up a racket then we may be able to produce champions of the future."
Youngsters wanting to improve their backhand and volley shots can register by calling Liverpool Tennis Centre on 0151 733 3264.
Adult coaching courses are also available with classes at Liverpool Tennis Centre on Mondays at 7pm and 8pm, and at Mersey Bowmen Tennis Club in Sefton Park on Sundays at 5pm. The cost is £2 per session.
The city council's tennis development programme is now in its tenth year and is one of the biggest and most successful of its type in the world.
