24 hour “tennisathon” in support of heart disease

Sadly last year, on Wednesday 11th July one of the Dads from our Saturday morning tennis group passed away suddenly from a heart attack, aged just 50. Rob Atkinson was a true family man and left behind his beloved wife and 3 beautiful young boys, aged 9 and twins aged 7.

To celebrate his life, and as a mark if respect, on the 19th July we will be embarking on a mammoth 24 hour relay tennisathon at Penzance Tennis Club. We are starting at 10am and playing through until 10pm that night when we will go up the road to Polwithen House to play overnight by lamp light! At 6am we will return to the tennis club where the final Players on court will be Rob’s wife Jo and her boys. There will be a number of fundraising events at the club on the Friday night including a performance by a local flute choir. The money raised via this page will go towards research at the British Heart Foundation “Beat Heartbreak Forever”.

We attach the fundraising page if you would like to support and raise awareness of heart disease and please come along and support the event!
