Cannock Chase Council’s tennis coaching partner, Cheslyn Hay Tennis Club has scooped the 2020 Communities and Parks Award at the virtual LTA Awards last week.
Cheslyn Hay Tennis Club; who have over 200 players, continue to deliver a range of coaching programmes, including Tennis for Free at Cannock Park and Hednesford Park.
Councillor Christine Mitchell Portfolio Leader for Culture and Sport said “This is a fantastic achievement for Cheslyn Hay Tennis Club who already holds the County Award for Staffordshire and the LTA Regional Award for the Midlands.
“If you are interested in their programmes, they are running COVID-19 secure free tennis coaching this month every Tuesday and Friday morning at Hednesford Park and every Thursday and Sunday at Cannock. Each session will last for 30 minutes in groups of no more than three including a LTA Accredited Coach.”
Chris Perrin from Cheslyn Hay Tennis Club said “We are extremely proud and honoured to be given the National award with so many other amazing tennis venues. There have been so many great moments and lots of hard work from everyone involved.
“From small beginnings in 2012 when the group started, we have got lots of rackets in new hands through affordable, accessible and inclusive tennis for all. We hope this is only the start, there is much more we can do to develop tennis in Cannock Chase.”
You can book onto sessions at www.cheslynhaytennis.com/freelessons. This is perfect to get players started of all abilities. These lessons are for groups of 1 to 3 players on one court so you can bring a friend or family member along, or come on your own. The tennis club can provide tennis rackets for the duration of the session, and these will be wiped down after use. If you have your own racket, please bring this along.
