Market Weighton Tennis Club is running special sessions for four age ranges.

Mr Thompson has a wealth of experience coaching all age ranges with a real passion for inspiring children to play tennis. Dave is keen to help children develop the wide ranging skills this sport provides which in turn can be transferred in all areas of life.

A club spokeswoman said: “Our successful bid for a Sport England Covid return grant has allowed the club to offer tennis sessions to all children in Market Weighton and the surrounding towns and villages;

“Beginning on Monday, April 12, children can attend coaching up to three sessions per week

Head coach Dave Thompson.

“There are four age ranges and the sessions are for four weeks at just £1.

“All the sessions are based on the new LTA Youth Programme. This is a modern approach to tennis training.

“No standing around waiting for your turn, they are lively, dynamic sessions catered for all abilities. If you’re just getting started and haven’t got a tennis racket, don’t worry.

“We’ll provide all necessary equipment for the sessions. We just want to encourage children to come and enjoy tennis.

“We are also helping adults bounce back to tennis – as all of our Cardio Tennis sessions are half price throughout April, and you can try your first session for free too. Other pay and play coaching sessions are available, too.”
