As Wimbledon kicks off, Walton MP Steve Rotheram joined the British Lawn Tennis Association in parliament, to encourage more children in Liverpool to take up tennis.

Steve explained, "Every year Wimbledon inspires young people to pick up a racket and play, and I am determined to ensure as many young people as possible have the chance to take part and enjoy tennis in Liverpool, and make tennis a sport they play throughout their lives."

Steve later encouraged Walton's schools to take part in the Schools Tennis Programme which has supported over 18,000 schools with free teacher training, resources and equipment since its launch in 2009.
