TENNIS equipment worth more than £200 has been given to a children's club in Huntingdon.

Brampton Kids Club is one of 101 clubs to have received the equipment from the charity 4Children and Nestle through the Nestle Kids' Clubs Tennis Scheme.

Each tennis kit is worth £250 and contains rackets suitable for different age groups, a variety of tennis balls (including foam for indoor use), colourful cones and markers, a freestanding net, plus a handy holdall for storage.

Brampton Kids Club was chosen by the Nestle Kids' Clubs Tennis Scheme because of its commitment to the game.

The scheme aims to target young people who might not normally have the chance to play tennis, and introduce them to the sport.

Jeremy Bates, former Great Britain Davis Cup captain, who supports the scheme, said: "The scheme provides an added incentive to really encourage the club organisers and youngsters, in a fun and helpful way - and I believe that this is really important for the development of junior tennis.
