Wimbledon starts today (weather permitting, of course) and The Gazette is launching a unique video guide to improving your tennis to coincide with the world's greatest tournament.

Starting on Monday, our website will feature an eight-part video series demonstrating how to develop your technique, put together by one of our sister papers, the Northern Echo.

The Northern Echo's Andy Lamb has teamed up with professional coaches Derek Edwards and Stuart Gaydon, to bring you tips on how to win more matches.

You can log on to our site throughout Wimbledon fortnight to see and hear the coaches explain how to hone your skills, starting today with the all-important serve.
