MSP Gil Paterson has praised a foundation for bringing tennis to a disadvantaged community in Clydebank.
The Judy Murray Foundation is bringing a session to introduce residents to the sport in Whitecrook.
The foundation was established by top tennis player Andy Murray’s mother, Judy Murray OBE. It seeks to get more people into the sport by running community based sessions.
The free introduction tennis session will take place at Centre 81 on Thursday February 20 from 10.30am to noon and include lunch after.
Mr Paterson, SNP MSP for Clydebank and Milngavie, said: “Tennis is a sport for everyone, and this is a great opportunity for people across Clydebank to take the first steps in learning a new activity.
“I applaud the work of the Judy Murray Foundation, because disadvantaged communities may not have had access or the opportunities to take up tennis like this.
“Getting more young people and adults active is something I really support, as we have a historic trend of unhealthy living in Scotland and are battling an obesity crisis.
“I encourage my constituents who think they might be interested in getting healthier, more active and learning something new to go along to the free event.”
