Press Release - Issued on: 29/04/04
David Lloyd Leisure Partners The Tennis Show
David Lloyd Leisure, the UK and Ireland’s leading racquets, health and
fitness group have become the official health club partner of The Tennis
Show, between 14th-16th May 2004 at Earls Court 2 in London. On Court
No.1 throughout the three days; David Lloyd’s experienced and qualified
tennis coaches will be holding regular coaching sessions at 45-minute
intervals. Whether you are a beginner or a regular match player, these
sessions will prove invaluable to you. With many years experience, the
David Lloyd coaches will improve your racquet skills and pass on some
tips of the trade that will give you an edge over your opponent on the
tennis court this summer!
There are 4 different levels of class: Starter, Re-Starter, Player and
Competition – so choose your category, bring your racquet and come and
let the David Lloyd coaches give your tennis a make-over. Remember to
get to the court early as these coaching sessions are run on a first
come, first served basis and only 6 players can be on court at any one
time. If you have some youngsters in your family or school who are keen
to improve their skills or just have fun on a court, then David Lloyd
Leisure has scheduled some Mini Tennis sessions just for them. Tennis
racquets will be available but if they want to bring their own, that’s
fine. So in one day, the whole family can have great tennis coaching at
every level and all for free!
David Lloyd Leisure is very excited about being an integral part of this
first Tennis Show: “We are all excited about finding the next Tim Henman,
but it is even more important to raise the profile of tennis, to get
more people hitting more balls, and to remind people what a fun, social
and healthy sport tennis can be. We are delighted to be working with the
LTA and to be supporting The Tennis Show”. Said Brian Linskey, Group
Racquets Manager, at David Lloyd Leisure.
David Lloyd Leisure has over 320,000 members across 56 clubs, with 41 or
those clubs having fantastic tennis facilities, generally with both
indoor and outdoor courts. A team of qualified tennis coaches and
managers are always on hand to inspire every level of player and every
age of aspiring Wimbledon champion – they will help whether you are
wanting to improve your game or just have fun! David Lloyd also operates
the largest junior tennis programme in Europe, with some 10,000 children
playing on a weekly basis.
