LESMURDIE Tennis Club is encouraging past players back to the court with a free open day later this month.

Club captain Patrick Rowland said the family-friendly club had been running for more than half a century and had received recent upgrades including the installation of two new synthetic grass courts.

“Tennis is a sport for life and playing skills quickly come back after a break,” he said,

“The open day is a Sunsmart event, promoting tennis when the UV is lower than in the summer and avoiding the heat of the middle of the day.

“Much of the club’s tennis is played when the weather is mild which makes it ideal for exercise.

“All of our eight courts have floodlighting so we can run competitions and social tennis in the evenings.”

Mr Rowland also welcomed juniors and adult beginners to come to the open day.

“We always enjoy visitors and offer a variety of tennis activities for adults and children, as well as coaching by Frontier Tennis, run by Cameron Fenner and this team,” he said.

“The open day will kick off at 4pm with junior activities on court, Cardio Tennis, organised sets of tennis as well as free refreshments.

“Two lucky visitors will also receive a free membership.”

The open day is on Friday, March 23 from 4pm to 8.30pm.
