TEN­NIS

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

GREAT Mis­senden LTC was a hive of ac­tiv­ity on Sun­day as, with part­ners Chal­lenge Ten­nis, the club took part in the Great Bri­tish Ten­nis Week­end.

The event of­fered free ten­nis for all, and some 30 adults and 40 chil­dren took ad­van­tage of the pro­mo­tion as first time vis­i­tors to the club, while the men’s first team also played a league game against Ayles­bury and won 5-1, hope­fully inspiring those watch­ing on.

The pre­vi­ous day, the club was equally busy as Ajit and Gita Kadirga­mar, plus helpers, held their an­nual tour­na­ment in aid of Save the Chil­dren, with the money raised help­ing the Nepal earth­quake vic­tims.

The tour­na­ment had its best ever num­ber of en­tries and, with dona­tions and gifts, more than £1,000 was raised for the char­ity. Liz and Paul Shep­herd, who had re­cently been train­ing teach­ers in Nepal, also talked about the prob­lems fac­ing the coun­try’s sur­viv­ing fam­i­lies.
