MAN­NING Ten­nis Club is set to celebrate its 60th an­niver­sary with a bang as the club opens its doors to the com­mu­nity for sport­ing fun both on and off the court.

Club pres­i­dent Ajay Tan­don said the Diamond Ju­bilee Open Day event would en­com­pass the club’s best qual­i­ties: the com­mu­nity at­mos­phere and com­mit­ment to of­fer­ing some­thing for ev­ery­one.

“Open Day is al­ways spe­cial be­cause it’s one of the few op­por­tu­ni­ties for ev­ery­one to get to­gether and en­joy the game of ten­nis,” Mr Tan­don said.

“The club sees it­self as part of the com­mu­nity, which is why we of­fer a range of so­cial and com­pet­i­tive ten­nis through­out the week, to cater for all ages and stan­dards of both mem­bers and non-mem­bers.”

Along with friendly matches be­tween ten­nis play­ers of all ages, the Open Day will have a num­ber of nov­elty games, in­clud­ing serv­ing speed chal­lenges and hit the tar­get chal­lenges.

Mem­ber Ge­or­gia Whit­ford (15) said she was most look­ing for­ward to play­ing against op­po­nents from dif­fer­ent age groups and ar­eas of the com­mu­nity.

The Open Day will be held at Man­ning Ten­nis Club on Septem­ber 12 from 1pm. In­for­ma­tion is avail­able at man­ningten­nis­club.com.
