On a beautiful Spring afternoon past and present members of Cheddar Tennis Club gathered to celebrate the official opening of the newly carpeted Match Play 2 courts at Sharpham Road.
After introductory remarks from the club’s new chairman Sarah Strawbridge, Cheddar Parish Council’s chairman Peter Colton was invited to cut the ribbon. On behalf of the Council he congratulated the thriving club on its continued progressive and forward-thinking approach in keeping the facilities up to date and commented that the new courts are a real asset for the club going in to the future.
All those present were then invited to try out the new surface and all four courts buzzed with friendly play and positive comments as some competitive matches ensued.
Tea and cake were then taken in the clubhouse rounding off a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon.
The club will be holding open days on Sundays 12th May and 7th July for anyone interested in trying out the new courts.
