The Blakemere Road-based club in WGC are holding an open day on Sunday starting at 12pm.

But there will be plenty of things to do off the court as well with various sideshows and stalls, including a bouncy castle, face-painting, a barbecue, beer tent and refreshments.

Jamie Simmonds, Orchard's chairman, said, “Our Open Days are always lovely events for the community to enjoy and also the perfect way for us to showcase what a great tennis club we have here in the heart of the Garden City.

“We can give people the chance to get on court for the first time or maybe encourage someone to make a return to tennis after a bit of a break or since playing at school.

“It will all be very light-hearted and anyone of any age or standard is invited to come along and join in the fun.”
