Congresbury Tennis Club has called on people to get active as it looks for the next Emma Raducanu and Andy Murray.
The village's club manager told the Mercury and Times that it has seen a sharp uptick in prospects at the club.
John-Lloyd Hagger said: "At the local level, tennis has benefitted from more people looking to play more and clubs such as Congresbury are thriving.
"It is also inexpensive compared to many sports; the entry point is a membership, a cheap racket is fine to get you started and, although not essential, group sessions at around £10 per hour will accelerate your progress."
An annual membership at Congrebury Club will set you back £120.
Mr Hagger added: "At Congresbury Tennis Club we have a number of for group coaching sessions for adults and for our junior set-up."
Adult beginner sessions take place on Wednesday evenings at 6:30pm, followed by a Rusty Rackets improvers course at 7:30pm.
