TINY tennis players had an ace time as they took part in a summer camp at Fort Matilda.

Youngsters enjoyed practising their shots after the popular annual summer sessions got the go ahead as part of the easing of lockdown restrictions.

Players made up for missing the Wimbledon fortnight due to lockdown restrictions with their own local event.

Camps have been running at Fort Matilda and Ardgowan over the last few weeks.

The Telegraph joined the juniors aged between five to 10 as they honed their skills on the court, while other sessions are running for an older aged group between 11 and 17.

Chris Jewell, of Ardgowan Tennis Club, said: "We are so glad to be able to make these camps happen.

"All the coaches were so excited to see everyone."

The costs of the camps were made cheaper for members of both clubs and becoming a member at one of them not only gives reduced rates, but also reduced coaching fees when coaching blocks re-start - plus the ability to book and play all year round.

Chris said: "We want to make tennis as affordable as possible, particularly at this time.

"We would encourage past members or non-members to take up membership."
