Save the Date – Professional Tennis Players coming to Hednesford Park
On the Saturday 14th August 1pm-6pm, Bright Ideas for Tennis are back! (Covid allowing - following LTA and park guidelines at the time)
Danny Sapsford and another Professional player will lead the sessions at Hednesford Park with support from Tennis Club coaches. Sapsford previously reached the 3rd round of Wimbledon losing to Pete Sampras and represented Great Britain in the Davis Cup. Many of you will remember that Danny led a fantastic coaching day with Jocelyn Rae at Cheslyn Hay in 2018 and has kindly supported us in 24hr marathon Challenge and Ash Taylor’s Skydive. We are so pleased he has agreed to come again this time at Hednesford Park!
