DO you enjoy playing tennis? Would you like the chance to play against others from across Devon. Devon Games to Inspire (GTI) is offering young people from North Devon the chance to play their favourite sports against other keen players from across Devon. A series of trials is being held over the next few months for competitors to try for a place in North Devon's team at GTI. The Tarka Tennis Centre in Barnstaple will be holding tennis trials on Saturday May 2, from 4pm for boys and girls from years 6,7 and 8 to come along and show off their skills.The GTI 2009, hosted and organised by North Devon Council, will be held in Barnstaple on Sunday, July 5. The event is free to attend and replaces the Devon Youth Games, which has run with great success for the last 10 years at venues across the county.Councillor Dick Jones said: "Devon Games to Inspire is a great opportunity for our youngsters to put their sporting skills to the test against other keen players from across the region. Competing against others really is the best way to improve. I wish everyone the best of luck in the trials and look forward to seeing our team in action at the games."If you would like to take advantage of the chance to represent North Devon at GTI you must live or go to school in North Devon and you must not have represented Devon County in the last 12 months in the sport you wish to compete in.
