The doors of one of Oxfordshire’s best tennis clubs will be thrown open to the public on Sunday 17 May 2015 2.00pm-5.00pm, as part of a national Great British Tennis Weekend campaign organised by the LTA. Portcullis Tennis Club is inviting everyone to come along for free fun at its annual Open Day and the chance for under 11 age pupils of six local schools to win prizes.
There are opportunities to try our free “Serve Speed“ radar speed test to see how fast you can really serve proving to be highly enjoyable in previous years. In addition, free adult, junior and mini tennis sessions are on offer including both a fitness-based cardio tennis session and family free play, all of which are run by a team of qualified coaches and league players. All rackets and balls are provided and light refreshments are available.
Club Chairman Steve Gothard said: “Our open day is not only about encouraging people to consider becoming members. We want everyone to try out tennis, see our facilities and have a fun day. We are a very sociable club with 4 well-attended club sessions each week, a full competition programme, professional coaching for adults and juniors alike and an array of evening social events.”
To encourage children to attend and try out tennis, we are running a competition in six local schools to win two main prizes of 6 months’ coaching (a total of 24 one hour sessions valued at £132), plus 12 smaller prizes (two per school) of either 2 months’ coaching (8 one hour sessions) or a 2 day tennis camp, plus for any non member of PTC, a free membership worth £15 for our 2015/2016 season.
Anyone wishing to attend the Open Day can just turn up on the day or Google https://clubspark.lta.org.uk/OpenDay search for Wallingford and register for your free place online.
Portcullis Tennis Club has over 270 members drawn from a wide area of South Oxfordshire. For more details see www.Portcullistennis.net
Membership packages are extremely reasonable compared with all major gym chains. A family of 4 can play all year for the equivalent of just 71 pence a day! An individual aged from 5 to 25 can play for only £50 per year.
