avenue tennis club burnham-on-sea

Burnham-On-Sea tennis players of all ages enjoyed an open day at the town’s Avenue Tennis Club on Sunday, coinciding with men’s Wimbledon final day.

Coaches Barry Ramsden and Vinny Duddy were supported by guest coach Corey Niccolls for a wide range of fun tennis activities and games in the summer sunshine.

Corey is currently coaching and playing at tennis star Rafael Nadal’s coaching centre in Spain and came along to help on the day, which was greatly appreciated by all.

Vinny told Burnham-On-Sea.com that the day had gone really well, adding that several families and adults expressed an interest in joining the club and getting involved.

“I would like to thank all the parents who helped out on the day, in particular Darren Lloyd, who took some fantastic action photos of the day, as well as all the committee members who prepared teas, coffees, cakes and other food during the day,” he added.

The club run family nights on Friday evenings, with Vinny’s Minis for children and a pay and play session (£2) for adults, with all equipment provided. Avenue also have a month’s free membership offer available for anyone who wants to give tennis a go.

Another open day is scheduled during August – see www.avenuetennis.com for details.
