Bridlington Lawn Tennis Club has bought new equipment for its junior members thanks to a donation from local business Lloyd Dowson.
Local youngsters attend training sessions on Friday evenings and they have the opportunity to take part in fitness work as well as improving their tennis skills.
At this time of year, the Wimbledon tournament continues to raise the profile of the sport, and it is hoped the donation will help the club to capitalise on this.
Vanessa Rowbottom, marketing manager for Lloyd Dowson Chartered Accountants, Tax and Business Advisors, said: “We are pleased to support the Bridlington Lawn Tennis Club again this year as it is a place where young people are given the opportunity to keep active, improve their skills and have fun playing tennis.”
Margaret Terry, who is a coach at the club alongside John Ashton, said: “We are very grateful to Lloyd Dowson for the donation as it has enabled us to purchase the equipment so that we can develop the fitness levels of the younger members at the club.”
Training sessions take place on Fridays between 4pm and 6pm at the club at Dukes Park and are free for members. It is £10 to join the club as a junior member.
