Indoor training at Queens

AFTER-SCHOOL indoor tennis coaching is being provided in Galashiels during the course of the next month.

Michael Fairburn, who is the reigning Borders men’s tennis champion, is staging classes in the Queens Leisure Centre in Melrose Road on Tuesdays until May 29.

The primary three pupil class is between 4-5pm and primary four pupils are invited to come along between 5-6pm. The sessions are designed to introduce children to the game of tennis and teach them basic skills, while playing lots of fun tennis-based games.

Rackets will be provided, but children are asked to bring their own water bottle.

Further details are available from Fairburn, who is a qualified LTA Level Two coach, on 07557 109252.
