TENNIS clubs across Taunton are experiencing a flurry of interest in the game thanks to an annual hit of Wimbledon fever.

The two-week tournament combined with some summer sunshine has heightened participation in tennis – and Kerry Quirk, manager of Taunton Tennis Centre at Blackbrook Pavillion, says enquiries about coaching have soared.

She said: “The return of Wimbledon this fortnight and the sun shining has meant we have seen more people playing tennis both indoors and outdoors.”

Great British Tennis Weekend takes place on Saturday, July 19, from 10am-2pm – if you want to play tennis with your family or friends for free, then book a court at tennis clubs across Taunton.
