Non-stop 24 hour tennis a big hit

By Lauren vd Vyver


On 9 May the Rhodes Tennis Club held a 24-hour tennis marathon for charity. Wimbledon is right around the corner but instead of gruelling play against the likes of Federer and Nadal, Rhodes Tennis keeps it hassle-free for goodwill.

The mission: to play non-stop tennis for a day, keeping the courts full and students active for a good cause. Starting Friday at 12pm, students retired from lectures to the tennis courts where a small donation was encouraged. The battle tested their endurance late into the night, when students arrived before and after their Friday night outings. Stress-free and fun tennis was played through the night. Chris Davies said the marathon was, “A place to relax after the Rat and Friars closes.”

The 24 hour Tennis marathon kept the stress down and entertainment lively making this event a hit.
