BRITISH tennis hero Tim Henman scored yet another ace as he opened some new courts.

The former world number four opened the new courts in Dorchester-on-Thames on Saturday.

After carrying out his official duties the former Dragon School pupil, who lives in Aston Tirrold near Didcot, took time out to give Ben Wilson some pointers on his game.

The five-year-old from Cholsey said: “It was fun. He told me that I have to do bigger swings.

“I would like to be a tennis player like him when I grow up.”

As well as the attraction of the new courts, there was also a summer fete at Dorchester’s Drayton Road recreation ground attended by hundreds of villagers.
