Reception children at Redbourn Infant and Nursery School enjoyed a free funded mini tennis taster session this week, delivered by Batchwood Tennis Centre coach Dan Smith.
The session is one of many delivered each year by coaches from Batchwood Tennis Centre, with the support of St Albans District Council, 1Life and Cassidy and Tate.
Around 3,000 children aged three to eight years are introduced to tennis each year through the initiative.
The sessions include fun physical games, racquet skills and an introduction to the basics of the sport.
At the end of each session pupils are the invited to take up tennis lessons either at their school or as part of subsidised programmes throughout the district.
