Tennis session is a hit; Tennis.
Wendy Glasper organised the "Have a Go Day" with other visually impaired adults, who thoroughly enjoyed their tennis taster session.
Barbara Borwell, coach at Tennis World, said: "We had a fun afternoon's tennis with the visually impaired adults who had travelled all the way by bus from Darlington."
The aim is to deliver tennis to both visually impaired adults and young people, culminating in competitions.
Jo Cunliffe, tennis development manager for Durham and Cleveland, now hopes to investigate ways to allow enthusiastic adults to get involved with mini-tennis in the county.
