£650 Raised for The Myton Hospices - 2nd July 2013
Dafferns' 2013 Tennis Champions
Forget Queens. Never mind Wimbledon.
The big tennis (and table tennis) event this year took place at Leamington Lawn Tennis Club on July 2nd – and it was all in aid of charity. Dafferns partners, corporate clients and fellow professionals from other callings raised £650 for the Myton Hospices by battling it out on the tennis courts and table tennis table of the Leamington club.
This year’s tennis champions were Susan Hopcraft (Wright Hassall) and Matthew Rhodes (Encraft Ltd). Competition in the table tennis section was fierce with 16 entrants battling it out for two hours. In the end, however, Dafferns’ own Brian King was victorious along with Stephanie Beswick (Beswick Relocations) and claimed the 2013 table tennis champions’ trophies.
Martin Gibbs, Managing Partner commented: “I saw some extremely competitive matches, but in the end everyone was a winner, because past experience shows that a lot of networking also takes place over the complementary refreshments.”
Thank you to all who supported us on the day.
