Whether you have aspirations of being the next Roger Federer or Serena Williams or simply want a casual hit and to meet some new people, the Paramount Tennis Club’s Autumn Open Day is the perfect place to start.

The Autumn Open Day, which will be held this Sunday, March 26, from 4pm, is free for anyone to attend.

Not only does it offer adults and kids the chance to have a hit of tennis, but it also allows current and prospective players the opportunity to hear about what the club can offer in terms of competitions, tournaments, coaching, social play and memberships.

A free barbecue will also be provided and the day is very much family friendly, so people that have little to no experience playing tennis are still encouraged to come along and give it a go.

Paramount Tennis Club prides itself on being an inclusive environment, and offers a range of competitions to cater for players of every standard.

Coaching is also available through established club mentor Matt Edwards.

Paramount Tennis Club president Paul Handsaker hopes the Autumn Open Day will build on the success of the New Year Open Day the club held in January.

“We had a great turnout for our Open Day in January with plenty of familiar faces at the club, but more pleasing, plenty of new ones as well,” Handsaker said.

“Several of those new faces are now playing in our weekly competitions and really enjoying themselves which is fantastic.

“The key message we want to get across is that our competitions and alike are suited to players of all abilities and interests.

“If you want to play some really competitive tennis and test yourself out, we have our A grade competition.

“But we also offer a B grade and C grade competition for those that aren’t as strong a player or would rather play more for social than competitive reasons.”

The club is currently half-way through its summer competition, with the winter competition to commence from late May.

The Autumn Open Day would be the ideal time for players interested in playing in the winter competition to come and have a hit and find out more information about it.
