NOTTINGHAM’S Market Square was taken over by tennis at the weekend as the British summer tennis season started in style. Hundreds of local people were given the opportunity to get on a specially made court in the square and give tennis a go ahead of world class tennis coming to the city next month.  

Coaches from Nottingham Lawn Tennis Association (LTA), Nottingham City Council Sports and Community Development staff as well as volunteers from Attenborough, West Bridgford and Magdala Tennis Clubs were on hand to put members of the public through their paces on Saturday.
