Sunday 4th May from 1 - 5 pm. Kids, bring your Mums and Dads.

Salts Tennis Club is holding its second open day on Sunday 4th May from 1 to 5pm, and hopes the weather will be better than the first.  “On the first open day this year we had everything from sunshine, rain, wind, and even hail and snow, but it did not stop a number of children playing tennis and enjoying themselves,” said Jim Dyer Club Chairman “and a couple of parents took to one of the courts in order to keep warm,” he added.   On the day, free coaching will be available from LTA qualified coaches, and everyone is welcome. “Kids, bring your mum and dad with you and have a go” says Gul Rashid the club’s coach.

Mini Tennis coaching will be available for juniors aged 5 to 15 all throughout the day, with adult beginner coaching and ‘beat the ball machine’ also being organised, so there is something for the whole family.

Members of the club will also be on hand to explain the club membership, social events and activities that are run during the year, and the number of teams that Salts have entered in the local and Yorkshire leagues.

“Our weekly coaching is open to any child from 5 to 15 years old who would like to come and try out tennis” Gul said.  “We cater for all standards of juniors, from those who have never picked up a racquet before to juniors who are able to rally and play good tennis.  We are working with the local schools, and have are looking to provide ‘affordable tennis’, subsidising the costs with local sponsorship”.

Salts Tennis Club is a part of Salts Sports Association, and is situated in the playing fields at the bottom of Victoria Road in Saltaire (over the canal, turn left, and the courts are 200 meters down the driveway on your right).
