On Sunday 8th October, the Halstead and District Tennis League hosted their annual Mixed Doubles Charity Cup, raising money for the Essex Air Ambulance. The event was run over three venues; Gosfield, Earls Colne and Castle Hedingham Tennis Clubs. Throughout the morning, 27 mixed doubles pairs from a range of different clubs competed against each other to win as many matches and games as possible. At the end of the morning rounds, the top two teams from each venue and the two best third place finishers qualified for the CUP. The 4th place and remaining 3rd place finishers entered the PLATE. All 27 pairs, travelled to Castle Hedingham Tennis Club for a Hog Roast, raffle and to watch the qualifiers battle it out for the trophies. After some incredible tennis on display, Sam Dewey and Amy Fung took home the CUP and Steph Holt and Seb Deery won the plate. The event raised over £2500 for the Essex Air Ambulance! A big thank you to all the players, to our sponsor, our local businesses who provided the raffle prizes and all the venues and organisers who made this fantastic event happen.
