Henley-in-Arden hosts successful tennis day

A SUCCESSFUL open day was held at Henley-in-Arden Tennis Club as part of the national Great British Tennis Weekend.

The weather played a significant part in the day with the rain staying away and the sun putting in a welcome appearance as members and visitors took advantage of the free tennis on offer on Saturday.

There were many newcomers to the junior coaching in the morning which were followed by cardio tennis sessions for the teenagers and adults looking to burn off some calories.

A mini adult tournament also took place before the day finished with an Aegon League orange ball (age nine and under) match between Warwick Tennis Club and Henley which the latter won 12-8.

Henley are now offering a Tennis Xpress course where adults returning to the sport and newcomers can rapidly and successfully get the full benefit of enjoyment that tennis can offer.

In addition to the regular junior coaching, Tuesdays are being dedicated to girls aged over eight who want to play.

Anyone interested in joining or coaching should contact Neil Supperstone on 07912 664426.
