Philippines Typhoon Appeal & wheelchair tennis fundraiser

Windsor Tennis Club had set an ambitious target of attempting to raise £500 in aid of the Phillippines typhoon disaster – millions of people have had their lives torn apart by this environmental disaster. They urgently need food, clean water, medical aid and shelter, lives are at stake and urgent action is required. Many, many lives can be saved with your intervention, but we needed to move quickly and the Tennis Committee were on the ball pretty quickly!

On Sat 30th Nov we raised an amazing £615 (smash that target why don’t you) to be split between Spokes Wheelchair Tennis and Save the Children Phillipines disaster fund. A great day was had by all forty-two participants. The overall winners were Winnie Sweeney and David Clements, who with some scintillating tennis confirmed their supremacy as PTAWTF Winners! First time holders of the Windsor PTAWTF Cup! Well, it was a virtual cup in all honesty, but you get what I mean. Following the great tennis everyone enjoyed a fantastic afternoon tea in Belfast’s finest club! The Tennis Committee is still taking donations so for those of you who were not able to attend the event on the day you can leave an envelope behind reception and mark it for the attention of Valerie Addy. Thanks very much to everyone who turned out to make it such a wonderful occasion! Your donations have helped save lives.

Part of the funds will also be allocated to NI Wheelchair Tennis Association – local wheelchair tennis offers wheelchair tennis players an opportunity to train locally with “able-bodied friends” and enables players wishing to make a “competitive hobby” out of their leisure pursuit. The funds raised will be used to help improve access to courts and facilities and giving playing opportunities to those who wish to try the sport.
