Tennis Centre mark Sport Relief with a 24-hour tennis marathon

FOUR tennis players from the Louth Indoor Tennis and Sports Centre marked Sport Relief by taking part in a 24 hour tennis marathon.

Players Ed Allinson, Phil Nicholson, Rachel Allison and Joe Allinson whacked away at the tennis centre located on the industrial estate continuously for 24 hours.

Sponsorship from friends, family and local businesses has been flooding in to support the cause and so far the quartet have raised over £1,100 with more money yet to come in.

Tennis fanatics could also put in a donation and have the chance to play alongside the four dedicated players who allocated different time slots for others to play with them throughout the duration.

The event took place from 7pm on Thursday March 22 to 7pm on Friday March 23.
