The flexible tennis revolution has come to Bury!

Press Release   •   May 18, 2018 14:56 BST

Local sportsmen and women are invited to join Local Tennis Leagues which has now come to Bury.

The leagues are revolutionising tennis in the UK with nearly 200 running nationwide. Taking place at public facilities, the leagues are designed to make it easy for anyone to play friendly, competitive tennis matches whether they’re part of a club or not.

The league is open to men and women of all abilities aged 18 and over. Players are organised into groups of 6-8 players of similar standard and they arrange matches against each other at a mutually convenient time. Any court that suits both players can be used, including the new facilities in Bury, so it’s a flexible format that can fit around busy lifestyles.

Everyone who completes three matches before the halfway point in the league is sent a free can of tennis balls and, with prizes for the winner of each group, the chance to meet new people to play and to enter the LTA’s members ballot for next year’s Wimbledon tickets, the league offers adults in Bury a new, modern way to play tennis.

The next round of matches runs from Thursday 21 June to Wednesday 15 August, but you must register by Monday 18 June to take part.

Sally Kinnes, Local Tennis Leagues co-founder, said: “Public courts often have great coaching or sessions for children, but there has not previously been an easy way for adults to play matches.

“We offer a structure that makes it easy for players to do just that while getting some great exercise at the same time. It also means you never need to be short of a playing partner ever again!”
