Today, i had the pleasure of going to and meeting the members of the Blackheath Lawn Tennis Club. After having initial contacts with the Head Tennis Pro, Greg, i had arranged to visit the club and meet its members today as they were holding a friendly tournament.
I was interested in photographing the Tennis Club as i wanted to promote and capture sports around London at both professional and amateur levels. I think that the programme that Blackheath Lawn Tennis club offers is great. It allows adults of all different ages and abilities to practice, play and compete as well as presenting an opportunity to keep fit and active.
Throughout the day, as the members played their different matches against different components, i was allowed to wander around all of the seven courts, photographing at my own speed.
There was a very friendly atmosphere throughout the day, although it was a competition, which made the experience of photographing the members of Blackheath Lawn Tennis Club very enjoyable and i was made to feel very welcome.
As i was not restricted on time, i was able to capture some great action shots, as well as shots that perfectly reflect the friendly nature of the Tennis club and the enjoyment all members get from it.
Thank you to Blackheath Lawn Tennis Club for allowing me to join you for the day.
