Batchwood Golf and Tennis Centre in St. Albans launched their DSActive tennis session at the end of September. 10 people came on the first Saturday which was a great turn out!
A member of the DSActive team said:
“It’s amazing to see so many people here on their first day! Parents and siblings can join in…in fact, the whole family can take part and enjoy some tennis. The parents also get a chance to catch up with one another whilst watching their child play tennis”.
The day started with different tennis stations, giving the players the opportunity to try different activities. Some stations focused on balance, others focused on footwork. Players also had the chance to take part in for some mini rallies which they loved. Two young volunteers were there to help and were absolutely fantastic with everyone.
After everyone was warmed up, the players got to practice their forehand, some of whom even showed off some impressive serves over the net.
It was a great day of tennis and enjoyed by everyone who came, especially the players. At the end of the session they all got a goodie bag which went down a treat! The players are lucky to have such a fantastic, passionate coach.
The sessions will now continue every two weeks, on a Saturday:
- 14 and 28 October
- 11 and 25 November
- 2 and 16 December
