An open day at Winscombe Tennis Club is being held on Saturday (May 18).

A SPECIAL open day for visitors is being held on May 18 by Winscombe Tennis Club as part of a major drive to attract new members and bring more people of all ages into the game from surrounding villages.

There are to be demonstrations, coaching and a chance for younger children to try their hand at short tennis, as well as club facilities, from the six all-weather courts, attractive surroundings and well-equipped clubhouse, on show.

Another similar open day is being organised on July 13, and from now until the end of August regular rusty racket sessions are being run every Wednesday evening for those who want to get back into the game, but want to break themselves in gently.

As well as regular club sessions every day, there is coaching for youngsters of all ages on Thursday evenings and highly-popular tennis-with-food evenings are being staged again on the last Friday of each month, with volunteers providing a meal to follow an evening’s club play.
