Acle Tennis Club has unveiled Andrew McNeil, from London, as the man to lead the club forward.

McNeil brings 13 years of experience to the role of head coach and has worked at one of the largest clubs in America, as well as spending time in Australia helping to set up mini tennis.

Plans for the club include a new junior and adult programme, while increasing the number of social events and tournaments at the outdoor venue between Norwich and Great Yarmouth.

McNeil’s first event is an open day on Saturday, May 26, at which members of the public are invited to come along and use the club’s facilities from 10am-3pm.

Activities on the day will include free coaching for all ages and the chance to play friendly doubles matches with current members. Visitors can take on the serve speed challenge to see if they can beat the coaching team and enjoy an all-day BBQ while finding out about all that Acle Tennis Club has to offer.

The club can be found on Bridewell Lane, Acle and anyone who becomes a member on the day will have their joining fee waived.
