Sport Relief 2016

Jamie Laing 24 hour Sport Relief Tennis Marathon

The LTA are delighted to announce that so far they have raised £25,807 for Sport Relief!

How we have raised money so far

'Made in Chelsea' star Jamie Laing has undertaken a grueling 24 hour tennis match on Thursday 25th February with a little help from some celebrity hitting partners and LTA tennis activities to see him through.

Laing said:

"When the LTA approached me to take on the 24 hour tennis match, the answer was an immediate yes. Working with Sport Relief in 2014 was an incredibly rewarding experience and to be given the chance to raise money for such a great cause again is really exciting.

"I love tennis and have played it my whole life, but this will be one of the biggest challenges I have ever undertaken - I need all the support I can to get me through and raise as much money as possible."

The British Tennis community will also be doing their bit by running numerous fun and active fundraising activities for their members. This will include traditional coffee mornings, cake sales, tennis social-events or and free open days for all and sundry from the local community to come along and play at the club in return for a donation.
