HUNDREDS of pupils from King’s School in Tynemouth took part in coaching sessions at Collingwood Tennis Club with LTA club coaches Stuart Cass and Adam Harker.
The school, which uses the courts during the day for curriculum lessons, sent classes as part of a joint promotion of the game.
Many of the pupils have gone on to play for the club’s teams, winning county leagues in the past few seasons.
King’s pupils Ellis Collings and Lucy Giles have been part of county winning mini tennis teams and Oliver Drake, Esmai Jonczyk-Brown and Tom Ridley have been an integral part of successful under-14s and 16s teams.
Coaching at Collingwood, at Priors Park, Tynemouth, is on Saturdays from 9am to 4pm.
