It’s all in the family for Chatteris Tennis Club as they continue to make a successful return following the coronavirus pandemic.
The club celebrated the launch of its family club sessions, to be held every Monday and Friday between 5-6pm, where junior players and their parents enjoyed an hour of play overseen by club coaches and committee members.
Over 30 youngsters took part whilst adhering to Covid-19 guidelines, taking advantage of coaching advice, the mini nets and main courts.
Simon Grainger, chairman of Chatteris Tennis Club, said: “I love nothing more than seeing families coming out to play tennis as it’s a great game for all generations.
“We do feel that we are somewhat of a ‘hidden gem’ within Chatteris, and it gives us great pleasure to welcome new members of our community to the club via our family club evenings.
