She added: “We all went on a jour­ney un­der the sea and to the zoo with Footie Bugs, whilst learn­ing new ball skills, pre­tended feath­ers were baby birds and threw them up in the air whilst danc­ing with Dinky Dancers, and imag­ined we were all Andy Mur­ray as we prac­tised over­hand throw­ing a ten­nis ball.

“Af­ter the ten­nis ses­sion the chil­dren were treated to a Wim­ble­don-style straw­ber­ries and cream treat”.
