Bridlington Lawn Tennis Club held a successful open weekend for members of the community to try their hand at the sport.

Players of all ages and abilities took to the courts as the summer season officially got underway.

Club president Dr Anthony Clarke said: “Weather conditions have been favourable, providing a foretaste of the warm spring and summer weather in store for us later in the year at our magnificent Dukes Park grounds.

“It has been pleasing to see all seven hard courts in use by people ranging from three to 81 years of age.

“Comments from participants have been positive and appreciative and we look forward to welcoming many more children to junior coaching sessions plus a number of new adult members.

“I am proud of the members and coaches of the club who gave up their weekend to help organise the event.”

Competitive games for the teams in the Driffield and District Tennis League begin this week.
