  5. New focus on tennis for Bradford youngsters post-lockdown

    BBC Radio Bradford

    There's a drive for more youngsters in Bradford, especially from South Asian backgrounds, to take up tennis.

    The sport was one of the first to become available after the first coroanvirus lockdown, and its governing body, the Lawn Tennis Association, has laid out plans to restart outdoors from 29 March.

    A Bradford community leader is hoping it could be a way to encourage young people in the city to get active as soon as possible after the current lockdown.

    Humayun Islam, chief executive of the BEAP Community Partnership, based in Manningham, says he's hoping to tackle misconceptions that tennis a "middle class sport".

    He says: "We have tennis as a multi-sports activity, so we have kids coming in who may play football, cricket, other sports.

    "Once they play tennis a lot of the kids enjoy it and once they come through the door, instead of playing football, they pick up a tennis racquet."
