Players are returning to social tennis with the prospect of competition later this season at Wells Tennis Club.
New club chair, Colin Blatchford-Brown welcomed the prospect of a busy and vibrant season with many new members who have stayed with the club during a year of closures.
“I started playing tennis at Wells a few years ago now, starting out with the Rusty Rackets coaching sessions. Wells Tennis Club is a very friendly club, and it is my pleasure to help out in the role as Chair this year.
“It’s an exciting time now we are back playing tennis, with a growing membership, plenty of coaching opportunities for adults and juniors of all standard with our professional coach Kevin Durney, as well as social sessions and planned tournaments for this summer.
“If you’ve been thinking about getting involved or just want to give it a try, get in touch with our friendly team. Take a look at our website and our Facebook page.”

Playing in the second position he won a singles rubber and narrowly missed out on a second in a tie-break. In doubles with partner Harrison Ingham-Cooke they won the rubber in a close match tie-break. A tough match all round with three Somerset players withdrawing due to injury.
