Bournemouth Tennis Taster Day

Although Bournemouth is well known for its beautiful sandy beaches, when the DSActive team visited Southbourne Tennis Club for the first of their tennis taster days, an umbrella was more
useful than a bucket and spade. However, credit has to go for everyone sticking it out, and there was some fantastic tennis on display.

The day began with a fun warm-up game to get everybody moving. The players then got the chance to show off their skills with a series of drills aimed at improving their forehands. The coaches did a great job adapting the session so that, despite the rain, everyone had fun and left with big smiles on their faces.

The taster day was a big success, and Southbourne Tennis Club and DSActive are working together to launch a regular session at the club, so watch this space!

A big thank you to Southbourne Tennis Club for hosting the taster day and thank you to the Tennis Foundation for their continued support.
