A number of Northampton tennis clubs are encouraging people to have a smashing time this summer by inviting anyone who wants to learn more about the sport to play for free.

Three open weekends are taking place at Dallington Lawn Tennis Club and at the Abington Park tennis courts on May 16 and 17, June 13 and 14 and August 1 and 2.

In addition, Rushmere Tennis Club, Northampton County Lawn Tennis Club and Northampton Tennis Club will be joining the June weekend.

The events are all completely free and are part of the Lawn Tennis Association’s drive to get more people involved with the sport.

Nina Bridges, Regional Manager for the LTA, said: “We are really excited that the Great British Tennis Weekend is hitting Northamptonshire this summer. With so many park sites and clubs running their own weekends there really is something for everyone.”
