Sidford Tennis Club held a very successful charity tournament in aid of Macmillan, writes Jacqui Warrender.
This is the fourth year the club has held such a competition and the 2017 offering was blessed with excellent weather which all helped to make it a special day on and off the court.
A dozen ladies took part representing Sidmouth, Torquay, Exwick and Sidford Tennis Clubs.
Apart from the tennis – which was of a high quality – the main event was, of course, to raise funds for the charity and a magnificent sum of £244 was put together following a lovely lunch and delicious cream tea!
The club would like to say a big thank you to all the players who supported the event.
