Sidford Tennis Club is gearing up for a special event this coming Sunday (April 9) when they will be offering the chance to take part in a game of ‘triples’.

At 2pm the club will open its doors and courts to welcome both new and existing players who are invited to get along to enjoy some tennis, social, cakes and refreshments.

Triples is increasingly more popular in the tennis world as a fun, competitive team-based game.

There are three players on a court who rotate position after each point. It is played with a lower compression ‘green’ ball to encourage more rallies and help with the safety aspects of having more people on court.

The open day is designed to suit all ages with some matches, ‘triples challenges’ to be sampled in between the annual Wimbledon ticket ballot and a bit of social tennis!
