Our new tennis programme is all about encouraging women and girls, especially from diverse communities, to get active, have fun and make new friends.
We are two female coaches (Carolle and Iman) who love tennis and want to encourage more women and girls to pick up a racket and play tennis!
Our tennis programme is completely free (funded by Sport England) and run with support from the LTA and She Rallies,. We already have more than 50 women signed up! Seventy per cent of these women are from diverse backgrounds. South Asian, African, Caribbean, Eastern European.
Our sessions are boosting women's HEALTH AND WELLBEING levels..tennis is great for improving mental health and physical health.
It's also brilliant in BRINGING PEOPLE TOGETHER. We have tea and biscuits in the clubhouse after tennis with our fabulous women and this brings communities together. This programme is also aiming to be a catalyst for change - we want ALL women, irrespective of background, age, ability, to play tennis.
