Friendly tennis league looking for players

Cheltenham Parks Tennis League has been set up at Montpellier Park and other public courts in the town to offer adults a great new opportunity to improve their tennis and meet new people following a summer packed full of sport.

Cheltenham Borough Council has been working with the Cheltenham Caf Company and Local Tennis Leagues to organise a league, which welcomes players of all standards.

Tom Sparks, sports development officer at Cheltenham Borough Council said: Since Andy Murrays success in the Olympics this summer, the interest in tennis has grown and this league will allow many people to pick up a racquet and have a go. The league is friendly but with a competitive edge and prizes.
Players are organised into groups according to their ability and arrange their own matches at a time and place that suits them. Open to men and women over the age of 18, everyone is welcome. Winners of each group win 20 and everyone who completes three matches by the half way point receives a free can of tennis balls. Everyone who joins can also get free British Tennis Membership, worth 25.

Round one starts on Monday, October 8 and finished on Sunday, December 2. Entry is 12 (10 for students) and the deadline for this round is Friday, October 5. Join online at www.localtennisleagues.com/cheltenham or email cheltenhamtennisleague@gmail.com or contact organisers on 0750 328 1732.
