THE Bahamas Lawn Tennis Association held another successful session of its “Play Tennis” programme.

The sessions are fun and interactive and provide a pathway for new beginners in the sport.

Today, Brajaxba Club joined in the training as some junior tennis players, including Jacobi Bain, BreAnn Ferguson, Brianna Houlgrave, Virgil Homere participated in the session.

The BLTA thanks veteran coach Mr Bradley Bain in lending a hand to assist this developing programme.

Young kids and newly PTC certified coaches alike had an opportunity to glean from his wealth of knowledge and experience.

As young persons come to learn the sport there are many opportunities to give back to the young people.

Perry Newton, head of junior development, stated that it is important to collaborate within the tennis community and the “Play Tennis” programme can only grow from those who share their talents.

“The children continue to be excited and eager about tennis,” he added.

Darnette Weir, president of the BLTA, expressed pleasure in the “Play Tennis” programme and hopes that interested persons will take full advantage of the opportunities to come together in the growth and development of tennis.

The programme resumes on Saturday, June 15 at The National Tennis Centre and is free to children aged 5-17. Registration is $1.
