Letchworth Tennis Club hosted a county disability festival day on Monday.

More than 100 pupils attended from nine schools throughout Hertfordshire.

Thanks to a recent initiative of the Hertfordshire Lawn Tennis Association, working in partnership with Letchworth along with Lister and Potters Bar tennis clubs, pupils from the nine schools have been making regular visits to their local tennis clubs.

The day consisted of two sessions, with five primary schools attending in the morning and four secondary schools coming to the afternoon.

Herts LTA county development officer Leo Tutt said: "The day was a huge success. The kids enjoyed themselves immensely. We will continue to work to bring tennis to as many people as possible."

Competition news

Some of Letchworth's red team players will be competing in their first Red Team Grand Prix at Odyssey, Knebworth, this weekend.

There is an individual event too in this new competition.

If you are interested in taking part in this, please call Maddy Walker for more details on 01462 675444.

All team players should look on the Herts website:
