Brighton & Hove Albion have joined forces with Sussex County Cricket Club (SCCC) and the Lawn Tennis Association (LTA), to offer a fans a chance to get involved with different sports.
Cricket and tennis activities will make up part of the fanzone for Albion’s last home game of the season against Watford on Saturday 25th April. Kick-off is at 12:15 and fans will be able to access the fanzone from 10am, where they will be able to participate in a number of activities with prizes up for grabs.
The LTA, who famously host the Aegon International at Eastbourne, will be giving fans the opportunity to pick up a racket ahead of the summer season.
Lisa Pearce, LTA head of region for the South East, said, “We are delighted to be linking up with two great Sussex sports teams to bring tennis playing opportunities to more people across the county. It is important for our sport to offer chances to play tennis to people who are not necessarily aware of where they can play.
“We hope they will have a great time at the fanzone. The fanzone at the Amex is a great way to kick-off this partnership and we look forward to continuing to work together.”
