MURRAY-mania arrived in west Suffolk this week as budding players picked up their rackets for a tennis summer camp.

The tennis coaching is just one of a number of sport camps being run throughout July and August at the Culford School near Bury St Edmunds.

During the tennis camp, which began yesterday, children will take part in mini competitions and for those who have already reached a good standard special “performance clinics” will be laid on.

Dave Watkin, Culford School's director of sport, said: “This will be the fourth year we have run sports activities for children in the Bury area across all ages.
