It's game, set & match as Tennis For Free returns to Beacon Park

Beacon Park's four tennis courts

Free coach-led tennis sessions will make a welcome return to Beacon Park in Lichfield this Sunday.

Tennis For Free is starting up again at Beacon Park on Sunday 25 April 2021, after Government restrictions were eased to allow outdoor sports.

Tennis For Free is a charity that aims to encourage more participation in the sport. They provide free coach-led group tennis sessions and all the equipment needed.

The sessions will run every Sunday from 2pm to 3pm at Beacon Park for adults and young people aged 12 and over only, due to current Covid-19 safety requirements.

Ben Percival, Head of Operational Services at Lichfield District Council, said:

“We know locals have really missed the coaching sessions, which are a fantastic way to introduce people to the sport or to get them back into it.

“There are currently only a limited number of areas re-starting Tennis for Free, so it’s great for our residents that Lichfield is one of them.

“Thanks to Beacon Park Tennis, the coaching is taking place on recently refurbished courts, but places are limited due to Covid-19 restrictions, so please remember to book, don’t just turn up.”

As Covid restrictions are lifted, Tennis For Free expect to open up sessions to the whole family in late summer.
