Racquets and balls will be provided, visitors just need to bring a pair of trainers for the open day on April 10.

The lawn tennis club, based on a large, site at Midgeland Road on Marton Moss, will also be offering food and refreshments for all the family at its welcoming clubhouse.

The club, just by the dual carriageway junction with Progress Way, also has all-weather, floodlit and a large indoor court – the only one on the coast.
