A Q+A with Judy Murray will be the main attraction at Batchwood Tennis Club’s party to celebrate the opening of the new centre.

Three years after a devastating fire tore through the old complex, the new sports centre was opened on Bank Holiday Monday. As well as six indoor and two mini tennis courts, the multi-million-pound structure boasts a 48-station gym, strength and conditioning suite, refurbished squash courts, coffee bar, judo dojo training facility, dance studio and bar for functions.

The party will start at 4pm with fun tennis games from all, including mums and dads.

At 6pm, the Q+A with Judy Murray, mother of reigning Wimbledon champion Andy, starts before a charity tennis auction at 6.45pm.

The club will be raising money for the Rally for Bally, the star-studded exhibition game in memory of Elena Baltacha, who tragically died from liver cancer in May. The money raised from the event will go to the The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity and The Elena Baltacha Academy of Tennis

A spokesman for Batchwood Tennis Club said: “We do hope you can come and help us launch the new centre in style. We would love to see all faces, both old and new.”
