What a brilliant weekend of Tennis.....
As the sun beat down this weekend over 160 people came to Heron Tennis in Newquay to enjoy free tennis.
Throughout the weekend there were a range of activities on offer including: Free coaching and fun games for players of all ages & Levels, Wheelchair tennis, Parents & Toddlers tennis, Onesie Tennis fun for under 8’s, free court hire and even a friendly doubles tournament.
The weekend activities provided a snapshot of what goes on year-round at Heron. With activities for children from 3 years and over, the disability and wheelchair tennis and adult sessions for all levels, it helped to highlight how tennis really is game for everyone. And best of all at Heron you don’t have to be a member and anyone can play!
Heron’s Tennis Development Officer, Paul Roberts said “wow, although it was a bit hot for the onesies, what a great weekend and how brilliant to see so many people enjoying themselves”
Although the emphasis of the weekend was all about having fun, it’s worth giving a mention to our tournament winners who were in 3rd place, Macey Laidlaw, 2nd Catriona Organ and securing what may well be her first win, in 1st place Sally Bowden. The ladies narrowly outscoring the men in this event.
The weekend was part of the Lawn Tennis Association’s Great British Tennis Weekend Campaign, which aims to get more people playing more tennis and it certainly seems that judging by the fun had at Heron this weekend there will certainly be many more people keen to play again.
