After breakfast at Norwich High School for Girls, Sabin visited East Anglia Tennis and Squash Club in Norwich, Discovery Centre and Lynnsport in King's Lynn, North Elmham Tennis Club and Easton Tennis Centre.

The visit was completed with an open forum and Norfolk LTA's annual general meeting at Carrow Road.

'I visited Norfolk as part of my role to see what is happening at grassroots level, within clubs, education and community venues, and during my three years in office I will visit every county,' Sabin said.

'I found everyone inspirational and very determined to develop every opportunity for people of all ages and abilities to play tennis.

'Richard Palmer and his team are passionate about what they feel they can achieve and it was clear when I visited various clubs round the county that their enthusiasm has been infectious and amazing things are already happening, not least the 7.30am session for young girls at Norwich High School, and the turnout at the AGM demonstrated that tennis is healthy in Norfolk.

'We depend heavily on the volunteers within the county associations to deliver our mission of getting more people to play tennis more often, and I would like to thank them for all their hard work, for without them and other partners such as schools and local authorities we would not be able to deliver tennis to as many people as we would like.
