Sunday 1st July saw the clash of the counties, Suffolk Titan Tennis players travelled to Cromer tennis club to take on both Cromer and Tennis Edge players in this charity tournament.
Over 70 players attended and participated in a total of 90 matches on Sunday afternoon, all basking in the glorious weather. Families arrived in their car loads to enjoy an afternoon of tennis spectating washed down with a delicious BBQ and refreshing beverages from the bar.
From player entry fees and raffle a total of £1,460 was raised for Cancer Research UK, a cause very close to the heart of Paul Hope, director of Titan Tennis who came up with the idea of this Charity Event.
The afternoon saw some fantastic matches, some players playing on grass for the very first time. There were some very close matches, running into three sets and tie breaks. Every match shows fun, sportsmanship and skill. If the players weren’t competing then they were having fun on the mini courts.
The end of the tournament signalled time for the parents and coaches to pick up their rackets and take to the courts with Ross Murray from Cromer and Marco Mitev-Will from Titan battling it out on court, followed by Marco and Asa Sumner-Keens in a very close three setter. Dads also participated with doubles matches against coaches and one another.
A fantastic afternoon, all in aid of a fantastic charity.
