Youngsters at a Barrow school have shown off their new found tennis skills at the end of a free six-week training course.

Tuesday marked the final Lawn Tennis Association (LTA) ‘Tennis For Kids’ session for 10 Barrow primary School pupils.

As well as being presented with certificates of attendance and brand new tennis rackets, free of charge, this final session gave the children an opportunity to demonstrate what they had learned of the game to parents.

Their tennis coach, Wendy Dye, who delivered the same scheme to pupils at St Edmund’s Catholic Primary School, in Bury St Edmunds, last year, said: “As with St Edmunds School both the pupils and all staff have responded to the scheme with such great enthusiasm.”

Launched last year after Great Britain won the Davis Cup, Tennis For Kids is part of a nationwide scheme which offers children, aged from five to eight, the chance to fall in love with tennis by taking a free six-week course delivered by specially trained and passionate coaches.
