Press release   •   Mar 21, 2019 10:30 GMT

Tennis for Free, the grassroots sports charity, will be hosting the ‘Big Tennis Weekend’ at St Mary's Park in Prestwich on Sunday 24 March.

Tennis for Free currently operates on 87 parks around the whole of the UK with plans to open many more in 2019. By hosting the Big Tennis weekend, it reaches out to all communities to encourage people to take up the sport.

All the sessions are coach led and suitable for the whole family aged from 3 years plus, and each session combines a different mixture of fun drills, mass participation games and free play every week. You can learn new skills, develop your tennis, have lots of fun and use the opportunity to spend time and get active together with family and friends old and new.

Finally, you don’t even need to bring any equipment, it is all provided. It doesn’t matter if you have never played before, it’s all about getting together, having fun and building tennis communities right across the country.

Tennis for Free chairman Patrick Hollwey said: “The Big Tennis Weekend is all about getting people from right across their community out into their parks and having fun, making new friends and hitting lots of balls, giving people the opportunity to mix together, get some exercise and use their park facilities all for free, let’s make this into the biggest weekend of parks tennis this country has ever seen!”
