Lawn Tennis Association hosts a great British weekend of tennis in Verulamium Park, St Albans
Hundreds of people picked up a racket and played tennis for free in St Albans as part of the Great British Tennis Weekend.
During the weekend children and adults gathered in Verulamium Park to get involved in traditional adult coaching and also had the chance to try out Cardio Tennis - a fitness inspired work out on court.
Children between the ages of three and 10-years-old also enjoyed short tennis - a scaled down version of the game. This event was organised by Lawn Tennis Association (LTA) which opened up the 39 venues across Britain and offered lots of different activities for free.
The Mayor of St Albans, Annie Brewster, who got involved in the day’s activities, said: "Well done to the LTA helping us build on the Olympic and Paralympic Games legacy, not to mention Andy Murray’s summer success, here in St Albans.
"I was very impressed with the potential exciting talent on show in Verulamium Park, many of our residents trying tennis for the first time.
"Even if you don’t make it to Wimbledon I hope people enjoy participating in the great game and discover where in the District you can access courts to play on."
