The Great British Tennis Weekend is back in July, just in time for tennis fever.

Giving children and adults alike the chance to experience the great sport of tennis for free, the Great British Tennis Weekend is a series of nationwide open days happening across Better venues this July 22nd and 23rd.

Some featured venues hosting events this July 22nd and 23rd are Highbury Fields, Rosemary Gardens, Delta Tennis Centre, Swindon, Bitts Park, Carlisle, Gosling Sports Park, Queensmead Sports Centre and many other centres and parks across the UK.

During the weekend there will be lots of fun activities, games and competitions for all ages and levels. Taster sessions and drop in sessions will be available as well as refreshments and prizes.

You don’t need a tennis racket – equipment will be provided – so just bring yourself and lots of energy ready to have a smashing time.

Following the huge success of our series of Great British Tennis Weekend events in May, which saw hundreds of children and adults flock to Better tennis centres to experience tennis for free, July’s series of events look to be even more exciting.

"Once again we are delighted to take part in the Lawn Tennis Association's hugely successful Great British Tennis Weekend. These events, which run nationally across a range of our tennis venues and sports halls offer an opportunity for anyone to come along and pick up a racket and try tennis for free,” said Barry Cawte, National Tennis Manager at Better.

“In May we ran Great British Tennis Weekend events across 12 venues with 17 events and this July will be even bigger and better. As the largest public provider of tennis in the UK we want to continue reaching into communities that would not normally consider picking up a racket. We want them to know that tennis is for them and that playing at our venues is an affordable and enjoyable option for all members of the family. We cater for tennis players of all levels... so who knows, we may find the next Andy Murray or Johanna Konta,” Cawte continued.

Whether you are completely new to tennis, want to introduce your child to the sport or are rediscovering your own love for the game, we have something for you and would love to see you at one of our FREE events.

There will also be a host of readily available information on how you can continue with your journey in tennis after the event, whether you are interested in 1to1 coaching, mini tennis for your child, social drop in sessions or just how to book a court and play.
