All set for a smashing tennis weekend at Centre

THE EASTBOURNE Arndale Centre gets set for Tennis Week with a host of activities for families on Saturday (June 11).

The centre will be sponsoring a radio roadshow that will be in the precinct outside Boots on the launch day of the week-long AEGON International Tennis tournament at Devonshire Park. Inside the centre, mime artist Andy Sinclair will be entertaining crowds while youngsters can have their faces painted for a small donation to charity and guess the number of sweets in the jar provided by the Truly Scrumptious sweet stall near Marks & Spencer. Chestnut Tree House Hospice will also be holding a teddy bear tombola near the Ashford Road entrance to the centre.

Eastbourne Arndale Centre manager Bill Plumridge said, “Tennis week is such a fantastic event in the town that we wanted to join in the celebrations. We hope that as many people as possible will come along and enjoy the tennis roadshow and win one of the prizes on offer.”
