With Wimbledon fever approaching, why not take to the courts in Marie Curie Cancer Care’s smash hit tennis event of the summer – ‘Anyone For Tennis’. The charity is calling on all tennis lovers to organise a sponsored tennis tournament between now and September to help raise vital funds for the charity.
Former Tennis ace and GMTV presenter Andrew Castle is supporting Anyone For Tennis and said: “Tennis is a fantastic way to keep fit and get out and enjoy the sunshine so why not make playing even more worthwhile by organising an Anyone for Tennis Tournament for Marie Curie Cancer Care? It doesn’t matter what level you are, the important thing is that every match played will enable more Marie Curie Nurses to provide free care to terminally ill people in their own homes or in one of the charity’s fantastic hospices."
Whether you’re a seasoned pro or a beginner you can organise a tournament to suit you. It could be a social game with friends in a local park or garden to a mini Wimbledon tournament at your local tennis club.
The winners of every tournament held will also be entered into a prize draw to win two pairs of Centre Court tickets for Wimbledon 2011 including a guided tour of the grounds, £300 worth of sports clothing from Loveall Sport and tickets to the final of the AEGON Masters Tennis 2010.
If you would like to organise your own Anyone For Tennis tournament this summer and to register for a free fundraising kit please call 08700 340 040 or visit www.mariecurie.org.uk/tennis. The fundraising kit includes promotional materials, a host of inspirational fundraising ideas and Marie Curie sweatbands, all to help make your tournament a smash hit.
