Tennis coaching for youngsters

Blyth Ridley Tennis Club is offering tennis coaching to children during the school summer holidays at the courts in Ridley Park.

The coaching will be provided by a professional coach.

There will be two one hour sessions each Wednesday morning from 10am to noon starting on Wednesday, July 24.

The 10am to 11am session is for primary school age children, with the second session for secondary school age children. Each costs £1 per child and they will need their own racquet.

The coaching is being part financed through a grant from Rio Tinto, which the club has gratefully received.

The tennis club is also open for adult members.

Anyone wishing to try their hand or return to the game after an absence, should email Charles Thompson at
