Featuring some of the best tennis players in the Midlands, the event was finally won by Marcus Willis, the tennis hero who played Roger Federer at Wimbledon earlier this year.

Daniel Jackson, who is an Associate Director in our Stratford-upon-Avon office and keen tennis player in his spare time, said afterwards ‘it was a fantastic day with an excellent turn-out and the tennis did not disappoint. The fact that it was won by the local-hero and club ambassador, Marcus Willis, was fantastic and a great opportunity to support Warwick Boat Club which is doing a lot of good work promoting the game of tennis in the local community.

However the weather didn’t exactly play ball and the players had to contend with persistent rain throughout the day.

Despite the conditions, the event was very well attended and the spectators were rewarded with an afternoon of excellent tennis.
