eastbourne buzz news - Jo Konta Tennis For Kids

Eastbourne tennis ace, Johanna Konta, has been passing on her skills to the next generation.

The World Number 7 and British Number 1, hosted a special, fun-filled Tennis for Kids session, which helps to get children into the sport.

Eight children who took part in the Tennis for Kids programme last year got the chance to show off their newly acquired tennis skills to Jo on court at the National Tennis Centre. After the success of 2016, the initiative has returned even bigger and better for 2017 and will give 20,000 children aged 5-8 a free 6-week tennis course and free tennis racket.

Jo said, "Programmes like Tennis for Kids are great for getting children involved in tennis but also generally active. It’s a free course and children get a complimentary racket, so there’s really no excuse not to try it!"
