Baltacha's legacy thrives in Ipswich

Nearly a year on from former British number one Elena Baltacha's death, BBC Look East's James Burridge visits her tennis academy in Ipswich.

"Elena's vision was participation," Baltacha's former coach James Friend told BBC Look East. "It was to get children playing tennis, regardless of their age or ability.

"It does not matter if they are going to be the next British number one or play down the park with their mates; it is about children playing sport."

Baltacha, who lived in Ipswich, died from liver cancer on 4 May 2014.
