The Club Community Play day last Saturday saw 24 youngsters in attendance.
Club Community Play caters for beginners from the ages of four to six.
Under the coaching of Vince Branigan, Henry Nam, Patricia Thompson and Amelia Lee, the young players are said to have fun while learning to handle racquets and equipment made appropriate for their young physiques.
The club said the modified tennis nets, small racquets and lower-pressure tennis balls made it easier for youngsters to accustom themselves with tennis.
They said any youngsters from our district could come along on Saturday mornings from 9.30 am to 11 am to participate.
