Youngsters in Inverness have been enjoying a smashing time on the tennis court.

Bellfield Park is hosting a series of summer camps, inviting children to come down to their tennis courts and practice their skills.

Tennis was one of the first sports where restrictions were lifted following lockdown caused by the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.

Tennis coach Mike Martin is leading the sessions at Bellfield Park.

He guides the children through the basic techniques of swinging the racket and hitting the ball correctly to ensure their shots landed inside the court area.

Children also had the chance to take part in matches against each other so they could put what they had learned into action on the court.

The summer camps will continue for the next two weeks and will also take place during inservice days on Monday, August 11 and Tuesday, August 12.

Last week, adults also had the chance to take to the court and improve their tennis skills when a four-week block of sessions began.

There are classes for beginners, improvers and those who want to learn some game tactics with male and female classes available to join.

There are also still spaces available for the summer camps and the adult tennis sessions.

For more information on how to take part, visit the Bellfield Park Facebook site.
