The Boston Community Tennis Partnership has recently held its Year One and Reception tennis scheme, which offers taster sessions to primary school youngsters.

Twenty-nine primary schools were involved this year and more than 180 children took up the offer.

Seven group lessons took place over four weekends and 80 of these children are continuing on the coaching programme.
