Surrey Sports Park launch their Summer Festivals of Sport this weekend with their Tennis Festival - the first of five free sports festivals to be held at the park this summer.
Throughout July and August Surrey Sports Park will host a series of free family fun sports days in tennis, squash, climbing, aqua sports and badminton.
