Wokingham Borough Council is hosting another Great British Tennis Weekend at Cantley Park in Wokingham, on Saturday 16 July from 10am to 4pm, and Sunday 17 July between 10am and 2pm.


Throughout the weekend, there will be free tennis coaching sessions, family time and free play. All ages and abilities are welcome and equipment is provided.

 

There will also be the opportunity for people to have their photo taken with the Davis Cup Trophy on the Saturday, between 9am and 4pm, as part of a national Trophy Tour of Great Britain launched by the Lawn Tennis Association (LTA) in April this year.

 

Following Great Britain’s historic win against Belgium in the 2015 Davis Cup Final, when Team GB hoisted the trophy for the first time in 79 years, the LTA wanted to celebrate this momentous occasion by organising the Davis Cup Trophy Tour across the country to thank the tennis community including players, coaches, venues and volunteers, who have supported the team on its incredible journey.

 

Cllr Angus Ross, executive member for environment, at Wokingham Borough Council, said: "I am sure that this event will be a huge success and will follow in the footsteps of the previous weekend held in May. I hope that lots of residents, that are feeling inspired by Wimbledon, can come along and take part in some of the tennis activities on offer."
