Manor Road Tennis Club launches new home with special VIP open day


MANOR Road Tennis Club (MRTC) launched its new home in Lymm Rugby Club’s Walled Garden with a celebratory opening ceremony.

Dignitaries, VIPs, club members, guests, sponsors and the media from south Cheshire enjoyed an Open Day of celebration as the new facilities were showcased.

The courts were officially opened by the Mayor of Warrington Cllr. Steve Wright, who is pictured above practicing his tennis skills with club Chair Keith Moss and Warrington South MP Andy Carter.

Four new, floodlit, all-weather courts, created using state-of-the-art ‘Tiger Turf’, are now available and a number of guests enjoyed the playing experience during the Open Day.

“We are delighted to offer this exciting new, year-round tennis facility to our existing membership and to new members we are keen to attract, including participants of other sports played here, namely hockey, squash and rugby,” commented MRTC Chair, Keith Moss.
“For example, the Mini and Junior rugby sections have many family groups who could join at discounted rates on a special deal, giving them a year-round opportunity to learn and play a great sport,” added Moss.
“Importantly, we also offer a ‘Pay and Play’ scheme to provide access to this outstanding facility to non-members via an easy-to-use online booking system.”
“I would also like to sincerely thank Lymm Rugby Club, the Lawn Tennis Association (LTA) and Warrington Borough Council for helping us make this happen,’ he concluded.
MRTC offers a range of social and competitive tennis to suit players at all levels, with coaching programmes available to adults and juniors, delivered by an experienced and fully qualified LTA-accredited tennis coach.
