A tennis club served up an ace 10th anniversary celebration as part of Letchworth Festival’s first Sports Weekend.
On the weekend that Andy Murray bagged his fourth Queen’s Club title, Letchworth Sports and Tennis Club welcomed more than 400 people through the doors for a free day of racket fun.
Families flooded into the Muddy Lane club to have a go at tennis, croquet and squash, while the Letchworth Fitness team put on a show with gladiator jousting and tug of war on offer.
Throughout the weekend various clubs across North Herts put on free taster sessions, with sports available varying from canoeing to karate.
Letchworth Sports and Tennis Club manager Louise Penny said: “Despite the rain, Saturday was very successful indeed.
“We had 190 people signed up to take part in events, but we saw double that on the day. We had lots of youngsters on the day playing tennis.
“We went big and the sports weekend would definitely be something we’d be interested in doing next year – it was a great idea by the festival organisers.”
