The 5th annual festival of Tennis got under way the in glorious sunshine in Chavasse Park, Liverpool One. The Liverpool Hope University International Tennis Tournament Festival of Tennis began with hundreds of children being introduced to tennis through a free tennis lesson organised by Northern Vision and its event team curtesy of Liverpool Hope University and event sponsors.
Head coach Sam Jelloh worked very hard through out the day with the kids who had never picked up a tennis racket prior to the event. Anders Borg of Northern Vision says "its all about encouraging kids to pick up tennis at an early stage in life and get them to join their local club,tennis is a sport for life and the earlier kids start playing the more they will enjoy it".
"There is also a lot of eager and hungry kids in the region and who knows the next Andy Murray may come from Liverpool!"
The festival will run throughout half term from 1200 to 1500 and we encourage anyone to come down to Liverpool One and check out the centre court and have a go at the greatest game on earth!
Spire Liverpool will be sponsoring the main event and showing support in the run up to the tournament by getting involved in the Corporate Tennis Tournament at Chavasse Park 6th to 8th of June. Teams include members of the reception staff, management and consultant orthopaedic surgeons from our bone and joint centre.
