Community tennis programme holds schools event

Cramlington Community Tennis Programme (CCTP) held its annual schools tennis event at Alexandra Park in Cramlington.

Local schools were invited to participate in an inter schools competition after receiving some coaching.

Four schools played in the event this year with most of the children experiencing tennis for the first time.

The day was a huge success and all players improved and enjoyed competing and learning the rules.

Head CCTP coach Phil Barron said: “It’s fantastic to see over 50 youngsters coming down and using these great new facilities in Cramlington, we are doing all we can to grow tennis in the area and encourage more players to play tennis.”
