Posted onPosted on 17th Jun

There is a chance to pick up a racket and play tennis at the Big Tennis Weekend event on Saturday, 6th, at Mansfield Lawn Tennis Club, Pheasant Hill, from 1pm to 4pm.

A spokesperson said: “It is all about having fun. We can provide rackets and tennis balls, so anyone can come along and play. There will also be a chance to try one of the new racquet sports currently taking the UK by storm, Pickleball!

“Come and join us for a fun day out for all the family. There will be organised tennis sessions with our coach, Gareth, from NowTennis/ Inspire 2 Coach. We have five hard courts and four grass courts, so there will be plenty of space to give tennis a try. Light refreshments will be on sale, have a go in the tombola and raffle. There will also be special deals on membership packages available.”

You can sign up for sessions in advance at
