Ace weekend’s a celebration of Great British tennis at club
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.
