WEEKLY TENNIS FOR CHILDREN and adults with disabilities have been introduced in Moray following a joint initiative led by Moray Council’s Active Schools team.

They have teamed up with the Elgin Tennis Club and Tennis Scotland to operate the sessions at Elgin Academy.

The idea is an extension of the disability sports club being run by Active Schools coordinator Hein Mijzen at Milne’s High School for the last two years. From Wednesday at 5.30pm Holly Wilson, a coach from the Elgin Tennis Club, will host the sessions in the Elgin Academy gymnasium.

Meanwhile the disability sports club at Milne’s will meet on Monday’s from 5.30pm and is open to primary and secondary pupils from throughout Moray.

There are two 45-minute sessions – the first for sport-specific activities such as athletics, football, basketball, golf and orienteering, and the second dedicated to boccia, a paralympic sport similar to bowls.

Anyone interested in either of the clubs should e-mail or call 07966 120516.

Additionally, places on the tennis sessions can be booked via and clicking on the ‘coaching’ tab.
