24 Hour Tennis Marathon

19th – 20th June 2021, from midday until midday

The third Bubwith Tennis Club 24 Hour Tennis Marathon

Once again we took to the court for 24 hours of non-stop tennis action, all in the name of raising much-needed funds for three causes. Alongside the tennis club itself, the principal beneficiary this year was the Yorkshire Air Ambulance.

Lots of people joined us and got involved in various ways – from picking up a racket and playing their part on court, to sponsoring someone else to do the hard work or by buying a cake or refreshments from the Friends of Bubwith School stall (proceeds from these sales went directly to FOBS).

Even eating gelato was a way of supporting the event!

Everyone was welcome – not just members of Bubwith Tennis Club

We wanted everyone to get involved; non-members were welcome as were local families, members of other local tennis clubs – anybody who wanted to have some fun whilst supporting three good causes.

But that’s not all – there was a lot going on (on and off the courts):
