Does your family like tennis? That?s the question we asked at our Twitter chat with Great British Tennis Weekend (GBTW). We wanted to know how your families engage with tennis?and got all kinds of interesting answers!
Great British Tennis Weekend 16 and 17 July 2016
During GBTW, clubs across the country throw open their doors and courts to all ? free sessions, free court time, free fun even if you?ve never held a racket before. Everyone can sign up for tennis sessions including mini tennis for young children, group sessions for adults, even cardio tennis (think workout + tennis-inspired drills) and more! Visit the GBTW site now to find the activities happening near you and to sign up for your spot.
In our Twitter chat sponsored by the Lawn Tennis Association, the national governing body of tennis in Great Britain and the people behind GBTW, you shared your tennis stories. What we discovered is how tennis is such a part of family life, although you?d like to do more it. Here?s what you said:
Game for kids
Love that British Tennis is encouraging kids to get involved ? my two love it now @rennie1811
Even our toddler makes a great ball boy, we just have to make sure he?s on the same side as his dad?s killer aces! @MuminaNutshell
We like that we get to join in when the kids take their lessons https://t.co/yEKw8sofrT @rennie1811
My son loves getting the equipment out ? especially the ball port (great invention!) https://t.co/eehB4oRiwi @FoxVillageFox
Love the look of the Kids Mini Tennis. The 3-10 age group covers all my 3 children which is fantastic @Lkash20
