Tennis For Free was established in 2004 to address the barriers for participation in Tennis and to bring the benefits of playing tennis and becoming actively engaged in sport to as many young people and families as possible.
Tennis For Free works in partnership with local schools, tennis clubs and local authorities throughout the UK, providing free access to community tennis courts, free coach led group tennis sessions and free usage of equipment.
How the Tennis For Free Sessions are delivered
The Tennis For Free Sessions, run at our participating public facilities, welcome all members of the local community from children as young as 3 years old. The sessions are family oriented meaning that there’s something for everyone and the sessions are split into sub groups to accommodate the differing standards.

Open Play Session
