The latest youth diversion programme has concluded with an eight-week sports development programme concentrating on the game of tennis.
This project was supported by the Armagh, Banbridge & Craigavon Policing and Community Safety Partnership (PCSP) in conjunction with Dromore High School and facilitated by the PSNI Tennis Club to run the well-attended programme.
The young tennis players were coached in the game and taught personal development by coaches from Hilden Tennis Academy.
Inspector Kieran Quinn, Chairperson PSNI Tennis Club, said: “This was a really fun experience for the young people and a great opportunity to build on their talents in the game.
“Sport is a great way for young people to feel engaged, stave off boredom and to feel included in a fun activity.
“Why not pick up a racquet and play, instead of making a racket this summer?”
The programme finished with a visit from Patricia Gibson, Armagh Banbridge and Craigavon PCSP manager, and all attendees were rewarded with a delicious ice cream courtesy of Graham’s in Dromore for their efforts.
