Scotland gets set for it's biggest ever summer of tennis

Wednesday, May 09, 2018

Great British Tennis Weekend will see courts across Scotland serve up free tennis for families and friends over two weekends this summer. The first Great British Tennis Weekend takes place this weekend (12th & 13th May) with parks and clubs offering free events right across the country.

Families and friends across Scotland are set to go tennis crazy this summer with two free 'Great British Tennis Weekends' smashing into town. The first of two weekends is taking place next Saturday and Sunday (12th and 13th May). Parks and clubs will be offering everyone the opportunity to get on court as tennis fever begins to grip the nation in the lead up to the summer season.

People right across Scotland will be trying tennis for free in a relaxed and fun environment and can take part in sessions including Cardio Tennis, Mini Tennis and tennis coaching – all completely free as part of the LTA, Tennis Scotland and Tennis Foundation's drive to get more people playing more often. Venues will be providing rackets and balls, so if you've never picked up a racket or just haven't played for a while Great British Tennis Weekend is the perfect way to get involved.

Tennis Scotland Head of Development 'Doc' McKelvey said: "We are really excited that the Great British Tennis Weekend is once again hitting Scotland this summer. With so many park sites and clubs right across the country running their own Great British Tennis Weekend there really is something for everyone. I hope families take the opportunity to take part in these fantastic events and ready themselves for what is set to be another huge summer of tennis here in Scotland, as we get behind Andy Murray, Jamie Murray and the rest of our tennis stars."
