Two important events in Winscombe Tennis Club’s calendar are coming up later this month.

TWO important events in Winscombe Tennis Club’s calendar are coming up later this month, with the first being the club’s annual ladies’ open doubles tournament on April 14.

Then the club hosts a men’s open doubles competition on the following Sunday (April 21), with both events attracting players from a wide area, while their annual open mixed doubles tournament in the autumn is also popular.

Meanwhile, the club is launching a drive to attract new members and bring more people of all ages into the game from surrounding villages. Two special open days and demonstrations are being organised to show off the six courts and clubhouse facilities on May 18 and July 13.

As well as regular club sessions throughout the week, the men’s and ladies’ teams which compete in the North Somerset League are practicing hard, and there is coaching for youngsters of all ages on Thursday evenings.

Regular rusty racket sessions are being organised for those who would like to get back into the game, but would like to break themselves in gently, while popular tennis-with-food evenings are being staged again from this month, with volunteers providing a meal on the last Friday of each month.
