Avenue Tennis coaches Barry Ramsden and Vinny Duddy, supported by a very special guest coach Corey Niccolls, said they had a fantastic day of coaching and fun on the Avenue Tennis Courts during their Open Day on Sunday 14th Jul 19. Vinny said Corey, who is currently coaching and playing at Rafa Nadal’s coaching centre in Majorca, came along to say hello and was coopted into helping with the Open Day which was really appreciated by the Avenue coaches and the adults who Corey took on court. Duddy wanted to thanks all the parents who helped out on the day, in particular Darren Lloyd who took some fantastic action photos of the day and all the committee members who prepared teas, coffees, cakes and other food during the day, Duddy said we had a very good time with quite a few families and adults expressing an interest in joining our fantastic club and getting involved in tennis.
