Last weekend I took part in a 24 Hour Tennis Marathon at the Duston United Tennis Club in support of Cancer Research UK. A great experience that was both enjoyable and quite tiring. Most people that took part had to play around 15-16 hours of tennis between Saturday 9.30am and Sunday 9.30am. We managed to raise over £1200 and donations are still coming in. You can use our Just Giving page if you’d like to make a donation.
The event was organised by Ollie, a club member, who did a great job! The club also organised a couple more events in support of Cancer Research UK.
On a personal note, 2013 marks the 20th anniversary of my brother’s and mother’s death so a few months ago I decided to do my bit and take part in some sponsored races as well as donate part of my fee to my two chosen charities, Muscular Dystrophy Campaign and Cancer Research UK.
