A FEAST of tennis saw 32 ladies raise over £500 for the Louth NSPCC.

Members of the Louth branch of the charity played a day-long round robin style tournament at Louth Tennis Centre as well as holding a raffle.

After a tough route to the final, Rachel Simpson and Tracey Regler saw off the challenge of the two Janes, Clark and Whattam, to secure the title and receive champagne and flowers as their prize.

The money raised will be spent locally by the NSPCC, the charity which helps to stop cruelty to children.

Sponsors who helped to make the day a success included Louth Volksworld, Forrester Boyd, Mason’s Chartered Surveyors, Lincolnshire Tyres, Famous Four and Jim Fairburn Butchers.The competition was sponsored by Glencore International Ltd.

The organisers also thanked the tennis centre for hosting the event.
