of Burnham-On-Sea's Nathan Edwards Tennis Academy were celebrating

local youngsters succeed at tennis.
pictured right with Sally, told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "I am
delighted to be able to allocate this money from my County Council
Community Fund. This academy is going from strength to strength
and producing some fine young tenis players, some of whom are
already competing at County level."
is so pleasing to see so many young people interested in this
sport and doing so well at such an early age. I would like to
thank Sally for all her efforts and also everybody who helps her.
It is a constant struggle to find funds to keep an academy like
this running, so if there is any group or society that allocates
grants within the local area that can support this club I am sure
they would be delighted to hear from them."
