ON A lovely warm summer’s evening, 12 ladies who had not played tennis since their schooldays attended start of the TennisXpress free six-week course at the Hollies Tennis Club in Tarporley Road.

The course is designed to teach basic shots, how to score, court positioning and fitness, so the ladies can feel confident enough to play a game with family and friends, and they are pictured with coach Thierry Piangnee.

The course organisers were delighted with the response and now aim to run another course later in the summer.

A waiting list is now open for any ladies over 18 wishing to join in.
