The 24h Tennis Challenge 2018
Members of the Metro tennis took part in a 24h tennis challenge to help raise funds for the Tuesday evening VI tennis sessions that take place every other week at the National Tennis Centre in London.
We played from 4 pm to 6 pm for about 2 hours and sighted players tried the sym specs on to get a taste of the challenge of playing tennis with various sight conditions such as Macular Degeneration,Glaucoma, Retinopathy, RP, Stroke and other eye conditions.
At the end we did a service challenge and had to knock down a large tennis racket placed on the court at the bottom corner of the service box and Amanda hit the target on all of her 4 serves raising £10 per serve for us!
Fantastic ! Well done!
