LTA Visually Impaired Tennis Festival

Worcester was delighted to be asked to hold a tennis festival for visually impaired youngsters which took place last weekend.

Hosted at David Lloyd Worcester, who went above and beyond to look after everyone.

Players came from as far away as Cambridge to join in the fun, organised by Neil Bates and led on court by coaches Tina Manning & Steve Bauer, supported by a team of incredible volunteers.

The day encouraged youngsters, some of whom had never held a racket before, to get stuck in and enjoy our sport.

An amazing day for everyone involved.
