LAST week Chard Tennis Club invited residents to come along and play tennis for free at an Open Day on Saturday, May 14, as part of the LTA Big Tennis Weekend.

The club opened the invitation up to anyone and everyone, from people who wanted to play for the first time or rediscover an old passion.

On the day there was opportunities to try out the new artificial clay court or play on the other two courts, with sessions led by Luke and his coaching team for juniors between 10 and noon and between noon and 2pm for adults.

Guests were also able to take advantage of special membership offers on the day and enjoy free refreshments.

The club website has more information about future events like this or other tennis enquiries.

But feel free to head down to Dening Sports Field, off Zembard Lane, Chard TA20 1JL, to enjoy some tennis and meet members and coaches.
