• 2 MINUTE READ

What an effort!

Not one, not two, not three, but 24 hours of tennis in a row has been completed by Made In Chelsea star Jamie Laing to raise money for Sport Relief!

Entering the National Tennis Centre at around 10am on Thursday morning, Jamie undertook an epic challenge which has so far raised more than £20,000 for great causes.

Over the course of the gruelling 24 hours on court, Jamie hit with performance players such as Kyle Edmund, Liam Broady, Katie Swan, Gordon Reid and Greg Rusedski as well as celebrity pals like Ashley James, Lauren Pope and Jess Wright.

He took on some of the country’s best Touch Tennis players, battled in a Fast4 tournament, learned how to play Wheelchair Tennis, completed two Cardio Tennis sessions as well as endless sets against visiting school children and his celebrity guests.

Afterwards, a broken man, Jamie said: “Playing tennis for 24 hours is definitely one of the hardest challenges I’ve ever taken on, but it’s been a fantastic experience raising money for such a great cause. I now need to sleep for a week!”
