THERE'S a 2020 vision in place for a Vale of Clwyd sports club.

Denbigh Tennis Club has held internal tournaments each September since 2015, when Gareth Jones took to court to win the club's first singles tournament in some decades when he beat Alastair McNab 6-1 in the final. This year, Denbigh Tennis Club will also have an additional men's and ladies singles tournaments in September and October.

In addition to the men's and ladies singles, and the mixed doubles, this makes it five competitions for members to look forward to.

The club will also be hoping to enter a men's third team in this year's North Wales Summer League, as well as two ladies doubles teams and a mixed team.

Denbigh Tennis Club has seen a spark in membership recently, seeing more ladies join the club over the past 12 months than men, a first of its kind in recent years.

Also set out are dates for monthly club round robin tournaments, an interactive way for new members to pair up with existing members for a monthly prize for the winners starting in April.

First up will be the North Wales Alastair McNab tournament.

This charity memorial event in memory of former treasurer Alistair who sadly passed away in September 2017 will be held on Sunday, April 7 (10am).

It will raise funds for St Kentigern Hospice and the Strike Association. North Wales clubs will be invited to play at an entry cost of £5.

Two weeks later will be the club's annual open day, from 10am to 1pm.

The event often attracts over 70 locals to have a taste of what Denbigh Tennis Club is all about and to review their membership offer, often with a 10 per cent discount on the day.

The club will also have a coaches, players and members in attendance to organise various sessions.

Denbigh Tennis Club continues to host weekly sessions for adults on Monday evenings from 6.30 to 9pm.

Junior sessions take place each Saturday between 10am and 12pm.

Club secretary Steffan Jones said: "As it is now the new year, many people will be looking to get more active in 2020 and to try something new.

"Tennis is an easy game to pick up - at lot of people believe that it's a tricky sport that requires a lot of skill, but that's a myth.

"We have a lot of new members and coaches available to support new or novice players into the club and the membership fees are by far the cheapest for any tennis club within the area.

"We also have three men's, two ladies and two mixed doubles teams over the summer and is a target for a lot of our members to play for.

"But, for others, just turning up and playing tennis regularly and against new players each week is more than enough to helping them get active in 2020 and it's a new hobby that will last a lifetime!"
