Inspired by Wimbledon?

by Ipswich Borough Council

 
New coach-led sessions are proving popular with people of a wide range of ages and abilities.
 
Women and girls have their own regular classes at Northgate Sports Centre on Tuesday evenings – and Ipswich Borough Council is waiving the usual fees during Wimbledon fortnight.
 
The classes are being held under the banner “This Girl Can” and take place at 6.30pm. For 4th and 11th July, the sessions are FREE!
 
They will offer top level coaching in a fun, game orientated environment. Don’t miss out! Contact Northgate Sports Centre on 01473 433655.
 
The initiative is part of the Council’s Ipswich Fit campaign, which also offers sessions for Juniors at 5.30pm on Tuesdays at Northgate.
 
There are also regular Tennis For Free sessions on Saturday mornings in Christchurch Park – for all ages and abilities and led by local coaches.
 
Tennis For Free is exactly that – free courts and free equipment. These family sessions are suitable for ages four-plus.
 
Tennis For Free is a charity working with Ipswich Borough Council, Ipswich Sports Club and the LTA to provide free weekly fun tennis sessions for all the community. 
 
Register and book in each week here.
 
Ipswich Sports Club in Henley Road also runs wheelchair tennis sessions are open to anyone with a physical impairment who would like to learn new skills, get active and have fun.

The club has a limited number of tennis-specific wheelchairs and racquets available so booking is essential. All other equipment will be provided during the twice-monthly Sunday afternoon (2pm to 4pm) sessions, which cost £5. Your first session is free.

For more details or to book, contact Steve Joint on stevejointtennis@outlook.com or on 07919 380330.
