Ian’s Sunday Service – 3 Mar 19
Ian’s Sunday Service 3rd Mar 19
Despite the severe weather warnings surrounding Storm Freya 10 hardy tennis players braved the conditions to take part in Ian’s Sunday Service, a fun mixed doubles tennis competition ran by Ian Howard of the Avenue Tennis Club. The winners were Ange Tinnion and Richard Belfield who are both featured in the group photo above of all the players who took part. The next Sunday Service will be held on Sunday 14th April and all are invited to come along and have some competitive fun at the Avenue Tennis Club whilst meeting some new friends.
The club are currently having 3 of the 8 tennis courts resurfaced and expect these to be fully available in April. They are keen to invite new members to the club and believe that the offer of a month’s free membership for anyone who wants to give tennis a go and wants to get an insight into the club before joining is a good deal. Qualified coaches provide coaching throughout the week for all ages and abilities. Membership of the club allows you access to play on 1 of the 8 floodlit courts (4 Astra turfed and 4 Tarmacadan), together with access to a fantastic clubhouse with a well-stocked bar, wi-fi and superb changing facilities for all; details of other benefits and discount associated with being a club member can be found on the website www.avenuetennis.com.

They have ladies and men’s teams that compete in the North Somerset Tennis Leagues during the winter and summer months.
