Southsea Tennis Club is organising a tennisathon on the day and night of the summer solstice. It starts at 1pm on the Saturday and continues right the way through to 1pm the following day. The event is an opportunity to play tennis and raise money for charity, all money raised will go to local charity, Sam’s Haven, which provides short respite holidays for families with children who have life-threatening or terminal illnesses. The target is £5,000, sufficient to sustain this small local charity, which works closely with the Paediatric Unit at Queen Alexandra Hospital, over the period of half a year and to enable it to offer 15 families a well-needed break away from all the stresses that the medical world brings.
