Beacon Tennis

In conjunction with Bedford Borough Council and British Tennis, the Riverside Tennis Club is launching a whole new approach to encourage individuals to take up playing tennis. ‘Beacon Tennis’, a project set up to alert the community to tennis activity, will launch at Bedford Park Tennis Courts on 5th November 2011.

 

The idea is to set up easy access, subsidised tennis sessions with local coaches at Bedford Park on Saturday mornings, allowing new or existing players to get involved, meet other like-minded people and improve their skills whilst getting fit.

 

Neil Frankel at Riverside Tennis Club, who is heading up the project, said: “The Beacon Project represents the most wide-ranging and well thought out tennis opportunity that the town has ever seen. The support offered by Bedford Borough Council and British Tennis means we are able to offer a new type of tennis experience to the whole community. It’s affordable, easy access and will aim to bring a whole load of players down to Bedford Park every Saturday morning to create a ‘Tennis Hub’.”

 

The Beacon Tennis Project is open to all ages, from Mini Red Players (8yrs and under), Mini Orange/Green (9 & 10 yrs), Yellow Ball (11-17yrs) and Adults (18+).

 

Cllr Doug McMurdo, Portfolio Holder for Leisure and Culture at Bedford Borough Council, said: “Many might associate playing tennis with the summer months, although Beacon Tennis provides the ideal opportunity to continue playing the sport on courts throughout the winter. The enjoyment gained from doing so will ease drab cold evenings and keep people fit, healthy and socialising.”

 

Alongside the official start date the Beacon Team are holding a promo day at Bedford Park courts during half-term on 27th October from 10am – midday and anyone interested in finding out more is invited to attend!
