Free and inclusive tennis sessions are set to launch in Rutland this Easter.

Supported by Active Rutland, Bright Ideas for Tennis is "Helping More People Play More Tennis" - and the team will be 'serving' a brand new session in Rutland soon.

The charity supports tennis clubs in the UK by increasing membership numbers, raising participation levels and improving playing facilities, as well as funding and supporting clubs to deliver their I Play 30 sessions.

One of the main aims of the tennis charity is to help clubs fundraise and to provide free participation opportunities for all within the local communities which, in turn, helps them to grow their existing coaching programmes.  

The Bright Ideas I play 30  inclusive tennis programme focuses on providing more opportunities for more people to play tennis, particularly adults and children with learning, sensory and physical disabilities.

The new sessions coming to Rutland will begin on 14 April 2024, and are set to take place every Sunday from 4pm until 5pm at Oakham Lawn Tennis Club, The Vale, LE15 6JQ.

The free, open sessions are aimed at anyone from Rutland with a disability and their parents/guardians, siblings and carers. Equipment is provided and the team have DBS checks and appropriate safety training.

Participants should contact organiser, Dan, to find out more and register interest before the sessions begin. Dan can be contacted via [email protected] or 07834 470940.

Alternatively, head to the Oakham Nub News What's On page to see other events, sessions and more taking place across Oakham and Rutland.
