Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Sport All The Week’s Action... -

Pa­tron Damian Green was at Wye Ten­nis Club on Satur­day to of­fi­cially open two new courts con­verted from tar­mac to clay.

The Ash­ford MP is a big sup­porter and fundraiser, and his ad­dress high­lighted the con­tin­ued progress he has seen on his reg­u­lar vis­its.

Mr Green also com­mended Wye for pro­vid­ing such a vi­brant fa­cil­ity which brings en­joy­ment to so many.

He was also im­pressed that the club caters for all ages with old­est mem­ber Fred­die Sim­son cel­e­brat­ing his 80th birth­day next month.

Wye club now boasts five courts and a strong mem­ber­ship, sup­ported by a hard­work­ing and en­thu­si­as­tic com­mit­tee.

LTA vice-pres­i­dent Vanessa Webb praised the club, say­ing: “It has grown out of all recog­ni­tion in the past eight years.”
