Louth Tennis and Sports Centre is hoping to find the next generation of Andy Murrays following the Scot’s sensational Wimbledon Win with an open day this Sunday, July 21.

The centre is working with the LTA to run the free open day from 2pm to 4pm to showcase the centre’s facilities for all ages.

Head coach Ed Allinson, who once played Andy Murray in the U16 Masters finals, said: “Andy’s victory will hopefully generate tremendous interest in the game and it is important that the LTA and clubs like ours capitalise on this and make sure between us, we make the game accessible and affordable for everyone.

“I played Andy when we were both 15 years old in the National Masters finals. He was already ranked number one in the world in our age group and it was obvious he was going to be a good player but to have achieved what he has is unbelievable.

“No one can imagine the work and dedication he has put in over the years to reach his current position. He is the perfect role model for any young person working to make their way in the game.”

The Open Day is free to new prospective members and current members and will be a day of fun with competitions and games for all ages from four years old upwards.

So be inspired to go along and play. Rackets are available if required.
