RESIDENTS of all ages can enjoy learning to play at a series of coaching sessions at Helsby Community Sports Club.

Cheshire West and Chester Council have paired up with Helsby Tennis Club and AgeUK to teach beginners how to play tennis.

Cllr Stuart Parker, executive member for culture and recreation, said: “The coaching is carried out in a friendly and progressive manner and everyone will have the opportunity to join Helsby Tennis Club or simply gain the confidence to make better use of the tennis facilities.”

The coaching sessions are due to start at the beginning of July and there will be a session for over 55-year-olds and adults who wish to get back into the game.

The coaching sessions will run in five week courses and will cost £10.

The over 55s coaching session will take place on Friday, July 1 from 1.30-2.30pm. The adult Back 2 Tennis session will start on Saturday, July 2 from 2-3pm.

Places are limited in the sessions. To book a place, call 01606 288556.
