Free, weekly tennis sessions are starting up in Huddersfield this weekend.

National sports charity Tennis For Free (TFF) is serving up the sessions at Greenhead Park and is investing in a year-long programme.

The project is a partnership between TFF, local professional tennis coach Tim Jenkins and Kirklees Council.

The maiden session takes place on Saturday, April 28 between 2-3.30pm. Rackets and balls are provided free of charge.

TFF works with local authorities and tennis clubs up and down the country and currently funds around 200 professional tennis coaches who are supported by volunteers to offer weekly sessions to people of all ages and backgrounds at its 50 sites.

Tennis For Free CEO, Paul Jessop said: “Greenhead Park is our first new site of 2018 and is one of hundreds more schemes we are planning within the next five years.

"All of our sessions are very well-suited to the whole family coming down and all playing tennis at the same time.

"The sessions are perfect for that first taste of tennis or for getting back into the game in a fun and relaxed manner but with all equipment provided and coaches in attendance to help out.

"We hope many people, of all ages and abilities, will come and join us at the sessions.”
