Not played tennis since college? Looking for a team to play competitive league tennis? Or just need to improve your fitness in friendly surroundings? Youngsters and older players alike are all welcome to come and join in the fun and games at Bourton Vale Lawn Tennis Club’s free Open Day from 2pm on Saturday 14 May.
Players of all standards and ages are welcome and Gloucestershire LTA coach James Hilltout will hold competitions, kids’ games and cardio-tennis sessions throughout the day.
Junior events: 2–3.30pm
(other members will be available to have a game with any grown-ups.)
Adult social tennis: 3.30-5pm
Tennis tea: 4pm.
Free racquet loan is available for rusty returners who don’t have their own while stronger players can play with members of the Bourton’s A and B teams.
Tennis whites are not required but players do need to have appropriate footwear that will not damage the courts.
The club, which has two floodlit hard courts just off the Rissington Road in Bourton-on-the-Water, has four teams in the Gloucestershire summer league and holds weekly social tennis evenings every Wednesday besides club tournaments and events throughout the year.
Just turn up
