Premier League tennis tournament is a smash with teens

The more people playing different sports the better!

You may only associate the Premier League with football, but this summer they have opened up their football clubs to teenagers offering free tennis sessions up and down the UK and former tennis pro, Greg Rusedski, approves.

The Premier League 4 Sport National Tennis Tournament focuses on developing skills in touch tennis, a form of tennis which has a greater emphasis on strategy and technical ability, than power.

The scheme encourages friendly rivalry between fans of different clubs, many of who would never get the chance to try tennis in their day to day lives.
