WITH Wimbledon fever set to grip the nation, Chester Junior Tennis Academy is looking out for youngsters who want to emulate British heroes Tim Henman and Andy Murray.
The academy, run by Keith Roberts at Overleigh St Mary's Primary School in Handbridge, seeks to take players who have either played at clubs before or are athletic and who want to take their game to a high level.
Youngsters who sign up are offered coaching and an opportunity to compete.
Keith said: 'We are not a standard tennis club. We are looking for people who want to do well, possibly even eventually turn professional, and who already have a certain ability and fitness.
'The academy is not for the casual player, but we are always on the lookout for talent.'
The academy has already held one talent identification day and is planning another for Saturday, June 30, right in the middle of the Wimbledon championships, which start on Monday.
'That is when interest peaks in the sport and perhaps there will be suitable people thinking about tennis at that time,' said Keith.
The session at Overleigh St Mary's Primary School will run from 2pm to 3.30pm and is open to anyone who is serious about tennis.
