The Tennis Ball 2015

On Saturday 14 November over 450 guests descended upon the London Hilton Park Lane, to help raise money for two of Britain’s leading tennis charities; Give It Your Max (GIYM) and the International Lawn Tennis Clubs’ Philanthropic Development Programme.

The spectacular ball, hosted by Sir Trevor McDonald with leading British comedian Alistair McGowan as master of ceremonies, raised in excess of £160,000 for the two charities through its raffle, donations and auction items. The auction was a great success with £50,000 the highest bid of the night for a commission by artist Sacha Jafri.
