Tournament a tribute to Syd


Sleaford Tennis Club held a tournament in memory of popular member Syd Taffs, who died last year.

It was the first club tournament of the year, with members forming teams to play.

Members of Syd’s family attended and donated a bench to the club, as well as a silver plate which will be the prize for this annual tournament.

The winning team were Jeanette Turland, Alison Gibson, Neil Woodmansey, Mark Johnson, Alastair Simson, Di Scott-Cross, Meg Cowap and Dave Robinson. The event raised £100 for the leukemia charity that Syd supported.
