She is excited that local tennis clubs are joining in to the event to give back to their community by offering free tennis this weekend; one court, one coach for one hour
“The aim is to offer a fun tennis experience for everyone.
“We want to create a stress-free time for everyone on court and hopefully it continues into the day and week. We provide a safe place to have fun and connect through movement and it’s amazing to see our community members lift each other up and come back again in the next week.”
