The Telford Tennis Centre in Oakengates is opened today by former UK number one tennis star Greg Rusedski. Courts are free to use this afternoon and you could get a chance to play or train with Greg.
The former US Open finalist will unveil a plaque in the morning to mark the occasion before meeting the public between 12.30 and 1.30pm.
All courts at the new tennis centre will be free for use on the day from 12.30pm until 10 in the evening and everyone who books a court at the centre between now and the end of August will be entered into a prize draw to win a Donnay tennis racquet signed by Canadian-born Greg.
The new tennis centre at Oakengates Lesiure Centre has four indoor and four outdoor courts as well as specialist coaches.
Between now and September 1, Flex card holders can take advantage of the special introductory prices for both indoor and outdoor courts. Information on the coaching and competition programme provided by Firstpoint Tennis Coaching will also be available for everyone who attends the event.
The new £2.2m eight court indoor and outdoor tennis centre is at the Oakengates Leisure Centre site which also has a swimming pool, Aspirations fitness suite, a sports hall, football pitches, floodlit artificial pitch and an athletics track as well as changing facilities.
