Tennis courts at Great Sankey to serve an ace this summer
Things may be hotting up on Centre Court but you don’t need to travel to Wimbledon to catch a spot of tennis this summer.
One year on from their opening, the outdoor tennis courts at Great Sankey Neighbourhood Hub are set for a busy summer season.
The courts and the 3G pitch will remain open to the public when the leisure centre closes for refurbishment on Sunday 16 July 2017.
The works will transform the existing leisure centre into a multi-million pound neighbourhood hub, which will provide integrated leisure, health, library and culture services in one facility.
The tennis courts were opened last year, thanks to £160,000 funding from the Lawn Tennis Association and provide a full programme of tennis all year round.
Children’s tennis holiday camps will run throughout the school holidays at the courts in Great Sankey and Birchwood Leisure & Tennis Complex.
Adults can pick up a racket and score an ace with a range of learning and development courses on offer.
LiveWire’s Activate programme is tailor-made for beginners, teaching basic tennis skills. While the Aspire programme is targeted at experienced players, who want to continually develop their skills and compete in matches.
Individual tuition is also available for beginners and advance players, and those who just want a casual game, can simply pre-book one of the outdoor courts.
