Courts full signs up at Urmston Lawn Tennis festival
2:03pm Tuesday 10th July 2012 in Sport
JUST as Andy Murray entered Centre Court at Wimbledon on Sunday the ‘courts full’ signs went up on all eleven Courts down at Urmston Lawn Tennis Club.
More than 250 people descended on the club for a free tennis festival as the sun made a welcome appearance.
The day started well with a league victory for Urmston's ladies team at home versus Hale.
Up and coming Local player Jordan Thompson was soon warming up his 130mph-plus serve and allowing all ages to dare to try and return his serve. He then joined Matt Nicholls, James Oliver and Jean Francois Potie as the four Urmston first team players put on an exhibition match.
A junior tennis tournament followed with more than 30 entrants but the rain unfortunately washed out the final but not before some excellent tennis. Social and informal Tennis ensued throughout the day while everyone kept an eye on the Murray v Federer final.
