Open weekend launches season of tennis events.

The sunshine helped to encourage families and individuals to visit the club last weekend (11/12 April) and players got their first taste of cardio tennis to be offered at the club. Cardio tennis combines exercise, music and the opportunity to hit lots of balls in an intense workout.

Club President Tasha Smith said: “I really enjoyed the cardio tennis session. Our new coach is bringing different and exciting opportunities to the club, for both children and adults.”

Chair Brian Clarke said: “It was very pleasing to see all five courts, and our two mini tennis courts getting good use over the weekend. There are more events planned through to the autumn kicking off with the Great British Tennis weekend in May.”

More events are planned at Wells Tennis Club through 2015 for those who’d like to try the sport for fitness or competition following a successful open weekend.
