Southend West MP Anna Firth joined in the 75th Anniversary celebrations of the Invicta Tennis Club in Westcliff-on-Sea.
The local MP to the court where she joined past and present members to play a game to mark the special occasion.
Invicta Tennis Club in Westcliff on Sea was formed in 1948 with two courts and pavilion. Over past 75 years, the club has expanded and now has three all-weather courts with floodlights on each. The club welcomes players of all standards and ages and coaching is available if required.
“It was a real joy to join the Invicta Tennis Club’s 75th Anniversary Celebrations. It is a testament to their hard work and passion that the club has lasted so long, and it was fascinating talking to members old and young about their memories.
Everyone involved in the club does a brilliant job in ensuring that everyone has access to tennis, and I want to congratulate them for the work that they do. Here’s to the next 75 years!”
