Get Going and Try Tennis with Us

by Heather McKim

It’s almost that time of year again when strawberries and cream are on the menu, Pimm’s is your drink of choice and the Wimbledon Tennis Championship is on the TV. Here at Virgin Active we can’t wait to get on court and we’re inviting everyone to join us - and not just for the two weeks of the SW19 tournament!

We all get that feeling of Great British pride watching the likes of Andy Murray and Laura Robson hit the grass court championships but does that enthusiasm encourage you to pick up a racket yourself?  Well according to research it doesn't!  48% of people, although inspired by events such as Wimbledon, never actually make it on to a court.   We’ve decided that it’s time to change that so we’re opening the doors to everyone to our 20 racquets club for 21 days kicking off June 24th for free.   

During these three weeks all you have to do is sign up on line to give tennis a try at your nearest Virgin Active Health and Racquets club.  After that you’ll get a call from the club to book you in to one of three classes that will be running each day.  The classes include Cardio Tennis, Group coaching, Tennis Xpress and weekend kid’s tennis classes.  

So come on Britain, let’s get going and give tennis a try!
