The final instalment of the fun-filled Great British Tennis Weekend returns in July as thousands of families and friends hit the tennis courts in their local area for free.
On the 22nd and 23rd of July, Derbyshire parks and clubs will open their doors as the nation goes tennis crazy in the lead up to a fantastic summer of the sport.
Great British Tennis Weekend is the UK’s biggest ever public tennis event and offers free tennis for anyone, whether you’ve never picked up a racket or haven’t played for a while and want to get involved.
Players will be able to experience Cardio Tennis, Highland Spring Mini Tennis, coaching and much more – all for free.
Last year, more than 1,000 venues across the country hosted an event with almost 60,000 people playing tennis for free in all corners of Great Britain.
Participating venues offering free tennis this weekend include:
David Lloyd Club Derby
CATHERINE KING, REGIONAL TENNIS SERVICES ASSISTANT said: “We are really excited that the Great British Tennis Weekend is hitting DERBYSHIRE this summer. With so many park sites and clubs right across DERBYSHIRE 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 DERBYSHIRE's biggest ever summer of tennis.”
