A “Tennisathon” Tribute to Rob Atkinson

The 24 hour Tennisathon, held in memory of Rob Atkinson who sadly died in 2018, ran non stop from 10am on Friday 19th July concluding with Rob’s wife Jo and his children bringing the event to a close at 10am on Saturday morning. The funds of over £3000 raised in Rob’s memory will be donated to the British Heart Foundation. The tennis club also raised funds of £600 during the event for the court renewal fund (“CRF”). After weeks of dry, sunny weather Friday’s weather forecast was for rain and most players got wet during the day with some pretty torrential showers at some stages! Despite the weather there was lots of laughter and morale was high throughout the day, evening and early hours of the morning! As part of the fund raising, a programme of entertainment was put on for the spectators on Friday evening. A group of flautists were followed by singing from “Twin Harmony” and then music from 5 piece Indie rock group “Caine”. All the musicians donated their time for free. At 10pm on Friday evening play switched from Penzance Tennis Club and continued throughout the night at Polwithen House (the old Bolitho School). As well as the players organisers Sarah Cross and Paul Matthews (who stayed awake for the 24 hours!), were joined by friends and family as spectators. Play carried on back at the tennis club from 6am when two players Dawn Roberts and Suzie Sinclair turned up to play in their pyjamas much to the amusement of the spectators! The sun finally came out and the event came to a close with Jo and the children playing the last 15 minutes. The club was packed with spectators and supporters and was a lovely tribute to Rob. Thanks go to Sarah Cross and Paul Matthews who were the main organisers of this fantastic event, supported by Trisha Smith, Dave Forrest and a number of others. Photos of each four that played each hourly slot will be posted on the website at a later...
