Residents were invited to use its facilities and tutoring for nothing, in a bid to encourage people to sign up on Sunday, July 13. Club chairman Barry Utting said: “It went well. As always, we were very fortunate with the weather; the sun always shines on Ascot Tennis Club!”
The club holds a couple of open days a year, when anyone interested can try out the club’s facilities. A number of new members joined after Sunday’s open day.
Mr Utting, who has been a member of the club since 1990 and chairman since 2009, said: “We usually hold one in April or May, and then again after Wimbledon when everyone’s rabid about tennis.
“About 10 people ended up joining us.”
