Tim Henman says, I always enjoy visiting Rye Lawn Tennis Club, having played there as a child with my family. I’m delighted to be hosting an open day, alongside Wimbledon head coach Dan Bloxham, to help get the message out that the club wants to make tennis fun, accessible and enjoyable for all the people who live in the local area.”

With the particular focus of the day being to encourage children to take up the sport, the club will also give away ten child memberships in a prize draw. The winners will be announced on the day. Children (up to the age of 18) will be coached in the morning, with adults taking to the courts in the afternoon. The club coaches will also be available to children on the two padel courts.

All coaching for children is free. Coaching for adults is a minimum donation of £50. Spectators welcome. Numbers are limited so places will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis. To book your place, visit the club’s website:
