TENNIS Wales is holding a free Disability Tennis Open Day at Colwyn Bay Tennis Centre on Saturday, July 16.

This is open to players of all ages and includes wheelchair, visually impaired, deaf, and learning disability tennis.

The sessions will be taken by qualified coaches, and all equipment will be provided.

Tennis Wales lead for disability tennis, Stuart Baker, said: “The open day is an opportunity for people with a range of disabilities, of all ages, to come and try tennis.

“At Tennis Wales, our vision is to open up tennis for all, and the open day is an important part of achieving that vision.”

It collaborates, trains and invests into partners across Wales to open tennis up to disabled people of all ages, abilities and impairments.

This includes learning disability tennis, wheelchair tennis, visually impaired tennis and deaf tennis sessions.

Tennis is also expanding its offer into other long-term health conditions such as mental health and dementia.
