Kent could be a step closer to producing a tennis star of the future following a donation of cash to a club which specialises in training children.

Kings Hill developer Liberty Property Trust UK Ltd is sponsoring the David Lloyd Kings Hill Tennis Academy and managing director Andrew Blevins has presented the club with a cheque for £3,000.

The Kings Hill Tennis Academy launched last winter to provide regular coaching for children between four and fourteen and, said Shane Theobald who runs the academy with Lee Friend: "Liberty Property Trust¹s sponsorship will allow us to offer a greater number of coaching hours to the children and enable them to reach their full potential.

"Our coaching team has years of experience and it is great to know that rather than working just once a week with the children, they will now be able to progress faster with more training sessions. I feel that we are making a difference and contributing to the future of British tennis."

As well as going towards more coaching sessions the money will be used to buy equipment and branded club sweatshirts for the children.

"As part of the Kings Hill community we are delighted to help and support whenever we can," said Andrew Blevins. "Exercise is such an important part of a child¹s life and this is a very worthwhile cause ­ and I look forward to watching the children at Wimbledon one day!."

The Kings Hill Tennis Academy operates from within David Lloyd Kings Hill and can be accessed by all talented children that are members. There will be OEtalent-spotting days throughout the year and anyone interested can find out more by contacting Shane Theobald or Lee Friend at David Lloyd Kings hill on 01732 222350 or by email to
