Tennis4Nepal 24 Hour Tennis

On Saturday 13th June two ex members of our club started playing tennis for 24 hours to raise money for the Nepal Earthquake appeal at their new club in Rothley, Leicestershire. Im pleased to say that Mary George and Kevin Shepherd (Shep) completed the challenge and so far have raised over £3,000. 

On the morning(!) of Sunday 14th Chris, Andrew and Alex joined Mary and Shep at 3:00 to  add their support. Despite Mary and Shep being a bit tired (they had only played for 13 hours by then!) a competitive match ensued with Hemingfords obviously coming out on top.

Well done to the pair of them for a tremendous achievement. If you want to know more please visit their Just Giving page or read their story in their local paper.
