Our 2017 charity of the year was the Dan Maskell Tennis Trust whose focus is in creating opportunities and supporting disabled people who want to play tennis.
As a club we raised a grand total of £2000, made up from Freddie Levett’s 24 hour tennis marathon as well as numerous fun tournaments and social events held throughout the year.
The presentation of the cheque to Director of the charity Sue Wolstenhome took place last week at the Queens Club in West London. After the presentation the club members present joined the trustees for lunch.
The trust receives about 300 requests per year for financial support in buying specialist wheelchairs which can cost up to £3000 each. So our fundraising effort was very much appreciated! Thanks to all who contributed.
