Play Tennis Day 2005

The Chelmsford Borough Council Sports Development Unit has teamed up with a number of tennis clubs in the area to host a Play Tennis Day on Saturday 9 July. The event is timed to coincide with the Wimbledon Tennis Championships and will aim to build on the interest in tennis generated by the tournament.
All tennis courts in Chelmsford Borough Council parks and at South Woodham Ferrers Leisure Centre will be free of charge so that people can practice their skills on 9 July.
Each of the clubs involved will provide a range of free activities throughout the day for adults and children including: speed guns, ball machines, competitions, prizes, demonstration rackets, free coaching, barbecues, refreshments and much more.
The aim of the day is to allow anyone with an interest in playing tennis to have access to tennis courts or coaching free of charge and to make joining a tennis club as easy as possible. The clubs involved are Great Baddow, Old Chelmsfordians, Little Baddow, Grove and Stock.
Cabinet Member for Leisure and Community, Councillor Moulds said: "This is an excellent example of the Council's willingness to work in partnership with local clubs and organisations to provide additional facilities for the people of Chelmsford. I hope that as many people as possible take advantage of this excellent event".
