A Tennis for Kids event is being organised by Cheddar Tennis Club.

Cheddar Tennis club will be participating in the Lawn Tennis Association’s Tennis for Kids scheme.

Originally launched in 2015 to celebrate Great Britain’s historic Davis Cup triumph, the scheme is aimed at inspiring children to try tennis for the first time.

Tennis for Kids is primarily for children who have never played before, focusing on fun and combining hand-eye coordination with basic tennis skills.

Cheddar club’s coach Stephen Pearce (pictured here with Annabel Croft, former British No 1 tennis player) will be running the six-session course for children aged four to 11 between June 3 and July 8.

For £25, children will receive six coaching sessions, a bespoke racket, set of balls and a personalised T-shirt.

For further details contact or 07904 061301 or go to

Another opportunity to try out tennis will be at Cheddar Tennis Club’s open day which is being held this Sunday, from 10am to 4pm.

Children and adults of all ages are welcome whether beginners, improvers or rusty returners.

So, if you are looking to improve your fitness or try out tennis for the first time come along and see what the club has to offer.
