James Wood Tennis Tournament


Another year has passed by and Broxbourne Tennis Club have once again held a Tennis Tournament in James’ memory with all proceeds to CRY.

This year the Club held their parent and child event on Friday, 1 December. It was at 6pm as the parents arrived home from work. The temp had dropped drastically that week and yet the competition still went ahead in almost freezing conditions. Matt and Connor Kirby were the jubilant winners of the tournament this year.

I’m delighted to say that 26 couples braved the conditions to join in the activity. So much fun was had on such an extremely cold and dark evening. It was a pleasure to be part of such a lovely event and the club raised £310. We lost James 15 years ago now and The Club has held a tournament ever since to raise awareness of CRY and to keep James’ memory alive.
