Sleaford Tennis Club has hosted the Syd Taffs Tournament, an annual event held in memory of one of the club’s most valued members who died a few years ago.

The tournament always heralds the start of a new season, and despite a slightly rain-affected afternoon, organisers managed to complete the event.

The trophy was awarded to Team Syd, a team consisting of Kathy Kinnard, Jenny Paterson, Rob Wright, Neil Woodmansey, Bryn Vivian and Chris Patten.

The event was enjoyed by all who took part and raised £100 for the leukaemia charity which Syd supported in his later years

Sleaford Tennis Club’s new coaching term for all ages, members and non-members, starts again today (Wednesday).

A free taster session is available to newcomers.
