People of all ages turned out to make the most of free tennis sessions at courts across Oxford last weekend.

Boosted by the warm weather, it was the first of four Great British Tennis Weekends to be held this summer.

Katie Leppard, chair and event organiser at North Oxford Tennis Club, one of four venues involved, was delighted with the response.

She said: “Well over 100 people came to our club from tiny tots to adults, some never having played tennis before.

“We look forward to welcoming them all back to the club.”

The next weekend is on June 21-22.
