Ooohh it’s Wimbledon soon isn’t it? Ooohh that’s exciting isn’t it? Not as exciting as real FREE tennis for real people though.
This summer Nike are taking over tennis courts in London’s Bermondsey for 10 days, giving them a massive revamp and offering free coached tennis sessions to one and all. Bonza.
The NikeCourt Club in Tanner Gardens will boast a hot pink tennis court and a black one you can draw on with fluorescent chalk (reason enough to go already) and from 25 June to 4 July there’ll also be free tennis and fitness sessions, sunrise yoga and special screenings.
The tennis classes will come in three different formats:
- Start from the Baseline – which covers all the basics and is ideal for beginners (hiya, that’s us)
- King of the Court – a fast-moving tournament to work on your game
- Fast Tennis – where some of the best coaches in the country will lead high-intensity sessions inspired by the sport’s top athletes (we might sit that one out)
All tennis, fitness and yoga classes are free of charge, you just need to book your place at nike.com/london
Oh, and we hear rumours that Serena Williams is popping down to share some tips too. Luv it!
