Courses are also being held for Rastrick High School students up until July and sessions for adults have also been organised.

Coach Roger Jackson said: “The children have really enjoyed themselves, all abilities have all tried their best and learned some important tennis skills.

“I hope they continue playing after the sessions and get as much pleasure out of playing tennis as I have had over the years. Tennis is an affordable sport for all classes”
