Sidford tennis club’s Davis Cup Legacy programme drew to a close on Sunday and, fittingly for an event that has been well run and superbly supported, the sun shone brightly for the final session.

A team of Tennis Warriors descended upon the courts as part of the LTA’s National campaign to share in Great Britain’s Davis Cup success and introduce 10,000 new children to tennis.

The free six-week course started in April and was delivered by local coaches Sue Wiltshire and Daryl Bass.

The course was designed for 5-8 year olds with the LTA providing the children with new rackets.

With the children challenging the parents on court, and the occasional grandparent helping out too, the family fun tennis is a healthy way for everyone to learn and enjoy the sport. Special thanks to the children for their enthusiasm, energy and superb warrior positions.

To help build upon these skills the club has organised follow on courses for the children which start on Friday, June 10, at 4.15pm. This mini tennis coaching complements the other courses currently running at the club on Fridays for all ages - adults, cardio (fun fitness for players and non-players), tots and juniors.

For details about joining in on these courses or any information on the coaching courses on offer at Sidford then please contact Sue Wiltshire at
