Heron serves an ace tennis programme
A TENNIS programme aimed at youngsters with disabilities or special educational needs culminated in an ace finale last week.
The Heron Tennis Centre offered special coaching sessions to around 40 youngsters who all attend either Treviglas Community College or Newquay Tretherras Academy, and saw the students putting their new skills into practice on the courts last Wednesday.
The players were put through a range of fun challenges and match play competitions, which highlighted the progress each player had made.
The players were also invited back to Heron for another free coaching session and given information on how to access other activities at the centre.

Paul Roberts, Heron's tennis development officer, who set up the programme, said: "This was a lovely day for everyone and a super way to round off what has been an extremely rewarding and successful programme for all.
"Heron Tennis is incredibly proud to be running a range of activities for players with any sort of disability, including wheelchair players.
"I have to thank the staff at both Treviglas and Tretherras for their assistance and we were delighted to see how much progress every student had made."
Heron Tennis Centre is part of a local Disability Tennis Network, one of 29 nationwide being supported by the Tennis Foundation to encourage disability tennis participation.
