FAMILIES across Portsmouth will be given the chance to get involved in the excitement of Wimbledon as a series of four free Great British Tennis Weekends sets up this weekend.

People across the city can take part in cardio-tennis, mini-tennis, disability-tennis and tennis coaching – all completely free as part of the Lawn Tennis Association and Tennis Foundation’s drive to get more people playing more often.

Zoe Bambridge, regional participation manager for the LTA, said: ‘It’s great to see the amount of local people who are grabbing a racket and getting involved.’

Participating venues offering free tennis this weekend include Milton Park, Cosham Park and Bransbury Park.

Venues will provide rackets and balls.
