Lancaster Tennis Club on Lune Road launched its new season with an open day and Good Friday social tournament.

More than 40 people, including juniors, attended the open day on March 29 before club chairman Paddy Maher organised his usual adult social tournament on Good Friday.

After glorious sunshine all day, the final of the competition was played between Martin Kearns and new member Geoff Orr against Paul Darwent and visiting player Cheryl Mitchell.

After a tough set, Martin and Geoff were winners 7-5.
The club’s match season starts at the end of April and it always welcomes new members. Call membership secretary Sandra Eccles on 07752 619241.
