Family Fun Day at new hockey and tennis facility


The public will have their first chance to try out the recently opened Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre tomorrow.

The venue at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park will host a free Family Fun Day on June 21 as part of the Great British Tennis Weekend, which is supported by the Lawn Tennis Association and Tennis Foundation.

Visitors can try Cardio Tennis, Mini Tennis (a national scheme to teach children core tennis skills ), and various forms of Disability Tennis (with this being the only purpose-built sporting centre for the Paralympics).


There will also be a chance to play Quicksticks, aimed at introducing hockey to seven to 11-year-olds, brought to visitors by England Hockey.
