Club Chair Dan Cooke said:

“Our club has plenty to offer for all standards of tennis – from coaching and social tennis for complete beginners, to those who want to represent Wells in the summer leagues and local competitions.

“Our open day is a great way to discover this sociable sport. I look forward to seeing some new faces on court on Saturday 22nd April.”

In the summer the club will be taking part in the LTA’s Great British Tennis Weekend so there will be another opportunity to use the courts for free on Saturday 22nd July.

The club can be found next to Wells Football Club on Rowden’s Road.
