Denmead Tennis Club celebrated its Diamond Jubilee with a special open weekend.

The event, held on Saturday June 8th and Sunday 9th, was attended by more than 60 children and adults, ranging in age from two to 80 who received a friendly welcome, homemade refreshments and a chance to give tennis a go.

The club’s coaching team of James Craven, Alan Redman and Frair Burgess ran free coaching sessions for all ages and all abilities including a taster session of the high energy and fun cardio tennis.

One dad said afterwards that “his son had a lot of fun .. it was a very nice environment, everyone was very friendly.” One newcomer to cardio tennis said it was the “best fun he had had on a tennis court for years.”

Club Secretary Deborah Coppini said: “The Club was delighted with the turnout and looks forward to seeing many of the new faces again on the courts. 

“We’re very grateful for the sponsorship of the open weekend by the Fox and Hounds Community Co-operative and Sporting Giants.”

The club, formed 60 years ago in 1964, has three floodlit courts in King Georges Field, Ashling Park Road.
