Actor Charlton Heston with tennis coach John Willis

The sessions run by head coach John Willis and assistant coach Jake Walker will take place in Haxey and Epworth.

John Willis, who has trained A-List Hollywood actor Charlton Heston said: “We hope to get parents away from the idea that they ‘drop off’ theirs kids at sport activity and collect them later. We want engagement and participation from all members of families.

“It’s healthy, they might learn a new skill and it’s also fun.
