On Saturday 10th November over 500 guests attended The Tennis Ball at the London Hilton Park Lane for a fantastic evening of entertainment and to support tennis charities, Give It Your Max (GIYM) and the IC Philanthropic Programme (ICP).
Several well known faces supported the evening with leading Sky Sports presenter Marcus Buckland guiding us through the evening and introducing Sir Trevor McDonald, patron of both charities, to make a key note speech. Tennis fan and Speaker of the House of Commons, John Bercow gave a short and amusing interview and Tim Henman came on to stage to help draw the raffle. The guests were entertained by British comedian Dominic Holland and at the start of the evening were able to witness speed painter Dave Sharp produce two stunning portraits of Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic which were auctioned off later in the evening. Amazing auction and raffle prizes were up for grabs and guests were further entertained by the very charismatic auctioneer Charlie Ross.
GIYM would like to thank everyone involved in supporting this event and helping to make it such a great success. Thanks to the generosity of everyone that supported the event we have raised much needed funds to support the great work of GIYM and ICP.
The Tennis Ball was supported by Linklaters, Zoo Communications, Maui Jim and City Am.
