Last Saturday saw an extended programme of free tennis with the Great British Tennis Weekend at Westburn Centre.

Over 130 hardy souls tackled difficult weather conditions to take part in an afternoon of various tennis activities on the 13th of June. These included both indoor and outdoor practices designed to introduce newcomers and progress more advanced players.

Activities included in the programme were Mini Tennis, Junior Tennis, Tennis Xpress, Adult Coaching, Cardio Tennis, Ball Machine and more.

Despite damp and sometimes windy conditions all who intended, be they juniors or adults, had a great afternoon building their confidence with a racket and having fun. Tennis Development Officer, Matt Kerswell, was particularly pleased with the turnout and how the day went. "The Aberdeen public proved they are great tennis fans with a large turnout at the weekend, despite the poor weather. It was fantastic to see people of all ages, families and individuals turn out and have fun on court with the Westburn Tennis Centre coaching team; hopefully we inspired some to keep playing."

The Tennis For Free programme continues as always every Saturday from 14:00. If you are interested in attending visit www.tffwestburn.co.uk for registration.
