TENNIS: Roadshow coming to Swindon
THE Tennis Foundation is bringing the inaugural Disability Tennis Roadshow to Swindon on Wednesday, September 18 to inspire more people to play tennis.
The event at Delta Tennis Centre will be run by the foundation in partnership with the Lawn Tennis Association.
It will provide an opportunity for people to learn more about how tennis can be adapted to suit all abilities.
There will be disability inclusion training in the morning for those who deliver tennis, including officials, coaches, volunteers and those who work at tennis venues.
This will be followed by a schools session to showcase the support British tennis can give both special schools and mainstream schools to adapt tennis for disabled pupils.
The roadshow will finish with free taster sessions for anyone who wants to give tennis a go for the first time or brush up their skills.
Licensed coaches will be on hand to offer expert tips with all equipment provided and those who attend will leave with information on where they can continue playing near them.
Dave Hillier, disability development manager at the Tennis Foundation, said: “The Disability Tennis Roadshow will give us a great opportunity to interact with many of our tennis partners, who are fundamental in giving disabled people a positive first experience of tennis in venues across Great Britain.
“It will also be a chance for those who just want to have some fun hitting a few balls, to do so in an informal setting and find a version of tennis that will work for them, whatever their ability.”
The roadshow will visit seven venues including Glasgow, Leeds and Coventry.
Places can be booked by emailing the Tennis Foundation on firstname.lastname@example.org. More information can be found at www.tennisfoundation.org.uk.
