BUDDING tennis stars from Shipley have received professional coaching as part of an Olympic legacy project from London 2012.

The Salts Tennis Club's Junior Tennis Camps have been sponsored by Bradford-based chartered accountants Watson Buckle via their charitable foundation.

Scores of youngsters between the ages of four and 16 have already taken part in the programme, with the final camp taking place between August 26 and 29.

Susan Sedgwick, managing partner at Watson Buckle, said: “We set up the foundation to encourage generations of young people to participate in sporting activities, and would urge any school, club or community group looking for a financial boost to their own Olympic legacy project to apply."
