HAVE YOU been hit by tennis fever when Wimbledon reached its later stages?
According to a report by retailer Next, the popular tournament has sent online searches for “tennis clubs near me” skyrocketing.
If you want to improve your backhand or just try your hand at hitting for the first time, here’s how to get into the budget. . .
FREE SESSIONS: Private tennis training is often quite expensive.
But Tennis For Free hosts group sessions and workouts for all ages that don’t cost a dime.
There are 44 sites nationwide, with plans to launch sooner.
Just search for a session in your area, at tennisforfree.com/sites.
WEEKEND FUN: Families can also grab a racquet and play for free at one of LTA’s Big Tennis weekends.
The events feature training, games and competitions and are taking place at thousands of locations around the country throughout the summer.
You just need to turn it on in your sports equipment.
Find an event near you and book your spot at lta.org.uk/play/big-tennis-weekends.
FREE COURT: Many local parks rent out tennis courts for free or for a small fee, although you’ll usually have to book in advance.
Look for sites that sell cheap tennis rackets and equipment locally.
Then get together a friend or child and smack the ball around to build confidence.
You should also look for local coaches and clubs to see if they offer free trial sessions — even a class can offer valuable tips for moving forward.
FREE DEVICE: Since women’s tennis players at Wimbledon are now allowed to wear dark shorts on the court, leopard lion and period lingerie brand Modibodi will launch Uniformchangeroom.com this Saturday.
The first 300 people to upload a photo of themselves in outdated white shorts will receive a free £46 pair of Puma x Modibodi leak-proof shorts.
Anyone else will get 15 percent from the Puma x Modibodi range.
