Some of our adult PAN-Disability team players were special guests at The Priory Tennis Club, just down Mottram Road from Bower Fold, yesterday for a hour and a half Coaching Session, with the Clubs professional Tennis Coach, Andy Perry.

Despite the constant downpour, the team thoroughly enjoyed the relaxed session, more so than their Ability Counts League fixtures at Aquinas College in Stockport the night before!

Our thanks go to Andy, along with Dennis and Trevor from Priory Tennis, for being fantastic hosts and allowing us the opportunity to try a different sport.
