Free coaching is being offered for members of Maresfield Tennis Club at Wednesday evening club sessions starting on April 19.
A coach will be present to organise the sessions, adding in drills, where useful, and arranging people so that everyone is playing at an appropriate level.
Chair Sharon Critchley said: “These sessions are great fun, and are going to run free of charge until the end of the academic summer term. All members are welcome, whatever the level of tennis they are playing at.”
Sharon added the club would be hosting an open tournament on Saturday, April 22, with complimentary refreshments. Members and non-members alike are welcome to go along and join in.
She said that from April until July Maresfield’s Aegon teams would be in action. “These are at a very high level, and are very entertaining. Everyone is welcome to turn up and watch. You won’t be disappointed.”
Those matches will take place at Maresfield on the following Sundays:
Men’s Division 1: April 23, (noon start) and June 4 (10am start)
Ladies South East South (Regional division): May 7, May 21and June 25 (10am start) and June 11 (noon start). Among others, the Ladies will be competing against Queens Club and Wimbledon.
All abilities welcome
Maresfield Tennis Club welcomes players of all abilities, from complete beginners to top level. It offers coaching for those who want it, competitions for those who enjoy a challenge, and club sessions for those preferring social tennis.
The courts are available for members who like to set up their own games and those interested in coming along to watch others play are welcome too.
The clubhouse overlooks the courts and members have access via a code lock on the door.
There are five Macadam courts, four of them floodlit. All were refurbished in 2008 and a fund is regularly topped up for maintenance needs.
Le Tennis runs a thriving junior coaching programme at Maresfield Tennis Club and also offers one-to-one sessions and group sessions for adults.
