Families gathered at a Leyton park this weekend to take part in the first ever Great British Tennis Weekend.
The event, organised by the Lawn Tennis Association, took place at 39 venues across the UK, including at Abbotts Park and was staged to build on the legacy of the London 2012 Olympic Games.
People of all ages and abilities were entertained with free coaching sessions as well as opportunities to play rounds of mini tennis, cardio tennis and women-only versions of the game.
