Tennis club offering free taster sessions to new players

Have your say

A tennis club is hoping to take advantage of Wimbledon fever by opening its courts free of charge to the public for an open day.

Ridgeway Tennis Club is holding the open day on Sunday, June 22, between 2pm and 5pm, as part of the Great British Tennis weekend.

Taking place a day before this year’s Wimbledon tournament gets under way, visitors will be able to take part in taster sessions, with rackets and balls provided.

People are advised to book places at the event, as organisers are expecting a high level of interest in the day.

Hundreds of open days will take place around the country as part of efforts to get more people playing.
