"Tennis gains its highest profile during the Wimbledon fortnight, so it's an ideal time to highlight the opportunities around Wales.
"You don't have to be a super athlete or ultra-competitive to enjoy tennis.
"The game comes in many forms these days - and most people play for fun, friendship and as part of a healthy lifestyle.
"These free sessions will help show how accessible tennis is - as one of the few sports you can play and enjoy at virtually any age, no matter what your ability."
As Wimbledon gets underway, various clubs across Wales are providing free tennis sessions for women and girls. It's hoped the scheme will encourage more people to take up the sport this summer. Clubs that are hosting free sessions include:
- Diamond Tennis Academy, Cardiff
- David Lloyd, Cardiff
- Rhos-on-Sea LTC
- Llantrisant TC
- Cowbridge LTC
- Flintshire Tennis
- Mackintosh TC, Cardiff
- Newtown TC
- St Fagans TC
- Crickhowell TC
Free tennis sessions are being offered to women in Wales. The scheme is part of Sport Wales' What Moves You campaign. As the world's greatest players descend on Wimbledon for two weeks, it's hoped more people will take up their raquets and make for the courts.
