Game, set and match for young pupils

SPORTY pupils at Shipham First School made quite a racket when Cheddar Tennis Club’s professional coaches paid them a visit.

A demonstration of tennis skills recently took place in front of the whole school during an assembly before a coaching session was held in the playground.

Similar sessions have been held in several other schools and have always been a hit with children and staff.

Cheddar Tennis Club is now inviting children to enrol in its holiday coaching course from April 18-20 at its courts in Sharpham Road playing fields, Cheddar.

The course, which includes lots of fun games as well as learning tennis skills, will be run by the club’s full-time qualified coaches.
