Tennis Club Open Day – Saturday 5 July

With Wimbledon fortnight well under way, Newcastle Tennis Club is to hold an Open Day to allow people to give tennis a try for free.

The Open Day, to be held on Saturday 5th July from 1pm to 5pm, is an opportunity to try out the Newcastle tennis courts and to find out about the benefits of Club membership.

Anyone who comes to Newcastle Tennis Club will be able to get involved in informal tennis sessions and coaching, all completely free. Racquets and tennis balls will be provided so anyone and everyone can get involved whether they have never tried tennis before, want to get back into the game, or are a regular player.

Jim Drayne, Newcastle Tennis Club Chairman, said:

“Tennis is a perfect sport for all ages and the Club has regular players from young primary school age, right up to those in advanced retirement.

“Newcastle Tennis Club is fortunate to have four top-quality all-weather and floodlit courts all set against the stunning backdrop of the Mourne Mountains. The Open Day is our invitation to more people in the local community to come and try out the facilities and to make tennis a part of your life.

“So whether, you are young, old or somewhere in between and whether you are a complete novice or want to re-start your tennis career, you will be made equally welcome at the Open Day.

“Tennis coaches and existing club members will be on hand to show you the ropes or to help improve your technique, while we will have special sessions for children of all ages. Everyone who shows up is guaranteed a turn on the courts – just remember to wear your trainers!”

The Bryansford Road Club has four courts, plus a Pavilion with a club room and facilities for visiting teams. The Club competes in the Belfast & District Leagues at Junior and Senior levels, while there are regular club play doubles sessions on Monday evening for all members. In addition, members are able to book a court for free any day of the year.
