A new era at the Avenue
A gala open day proved the perfect way to mark a new era at Avenue Lawn Tennis, Squash and Fitness Club.
Guest of honour Havant MP Alan Mak officially unveiled the club’s new court, which features a synthetic surface to enable play all-year-round.
The new courts brought the club total up to 24, which are used for a mixture of regional tournaments, weekend meetings, children’s coaching and casual play. Members also enjoy an array of weekly classes and groups, from squash coaching to Pilates and social bridge.
The club, which dates back to 1902, was voted Lawn Tennis Association Club of 1996 and provides high-quality facilities for a range of sports, encouraging participation by all ages and abilities.
Club president Peter Davies said: “Thanks to Alan for coming along to open our new courts, which add an extra buzz to the exciting programme that the club is looking forward to over the next few months. Whether it is first-time players or seasoned professionals, we welcome local residents to come down and pick up a racket with us.”
