PLAYERS TOOK to the courts at Tame Valley Squash and Tennis Club to help raise funds for a cause close to their hearts.
The club’s summer barbecue included a handicap squash tournament and American tennis competition to offer fun and friendship for members whatever their skill level.
But it was also a fundraising day for the Brain Tumour Charity, organised by 16-year-old member Emma Hall who has a brain tumour herself.
The event raised £373 for the charity, which funds scientific and clinical research into brain tumours and treatments and raises general awareness.
Emma said: “The whole event was amazing and very well attended.
“Everyone had a great time and together we managed to raise funds for a worthy charity, one which is very close to my heart.”
The handicap squash event saw 27 players of varying abilities compete, with Christian Maddox crowned the winner and Barry Stringer runner-up.
And 16 players competed in the tennis tournament, which was won by Richard Kiy with Robin Gadsby runner-up.
The barbecue and disco followed to bring club members together to conclude a fabulous day.
Meanwhile, success was in the air for the tennis junior section as the U14s and U17s both won their respective Manchester and District Lawn Tennis Leagues.
And Tame Valley B U14s clinched second place in the league to add to the achievements.
