Former British No1 Tim Henman recently joined the Premier Tennis coaching team at Sportfest 2013 to run through some drills and exercises with young players. Afterwards, Tim gave his thoughts: “Premier Tennis are working hard with schools and clubs to make learning to play tennis fun, and to ensure kids can really have a chance to play the game.
