Tennis For Kids: free lessons from LTA target 20,000 children across UK

Greg Rusedski and Annabel Croft launch Tennis for Kids with some children

The Lawn Tennis Association (LTA) has followed up last year’s launch of Tennis for Kids with an expanded programme of free lessons for children aged five to eight.

Nearly 1,000 coaches have undergone training to deliver the course of six lessons, which are available to 20,000 participants across the UK.

Children who attend at least four lessons receive a free tennis racquet.
