The juniors at Woodland Tennis Club took part in the celebratory mood of the country with games of a royal theme.

Royal wedding fever was present at Woodland Tennis Club as the juniors shared in the celebratory mood of the country.

Dressed in patriotic colours of red, white and blue, they played games with a royal theme: King of the Court, Rally King and Prisoner in the Tower.

The fun was only briefly interrupted for a few tasty treats provided by the club. Secretary Annie Buckingham, was delighted with the enthusiasm of the juniors and said: “Our juniors’ imaginations have certainly been captured by the royal wedding and it was lovely to be able to celebrate the occasion with them.”

Woodland is holding an open day on Saturday, where anyone can come and give tennis a go or dust off their rackets and get back into the sport.

Primary school age children are welcome to come along at 10 am, secondary school age juniors are at 11am, while adults can pop along from 1.30pm.
