SUMMER is here but only now have members of Melcombe Regis Lawn Tennis Club been able to celebrate winning the Yeovil & District Winter League.

With so many matches being washed out earlier in the year, the Fernhill Avenue-based club had to extend their season into May to complete all their fixtures.

But when all the results were in, it was victory for the small two-court club over their bigger rivals.

Now the club is looking forward to a successful summer season, joining in the ‘Great British Tennis Weekend’ with an open day on Saturday, June 21 when free tennis is available to anyone who would like to try it on their astroturf courts.

The action starts at 10.30am and for more details ring 835131.
