Club helps local charity

Written by Bobby Kerr

HELENSBURGH Tennis Club members once again dug deep and raised £250 to donate to the local branch of Alzheimer Scotland.

Committee members Fiona MacLaren and Bobby Kerr joined Anne-Marie King, Dementia Advisor, and Lisa Lees, Community Activity Organiser, at the West Princes Street branch to hand over the cheque.

Club members recently took part in a bespoke first aid course specifically looking at tennis injuries including bleedings, sprains, fractures, cuts, grazes, bruises, burns, cramps and head injuries.

The course was in addition to the recent training session on the club’s defibrillator.

Junior coaching starts this week. A new cardio tennis class begins on Wednesday February 27, with the popular drills sessions starting the following evening at 7pm.
