Who needs Wimbledon?
Earlier this week we were joined by long term supporters Wolverhampton Lawn Tennis and Squash Club (WLTSC) who helped us to bring Wimbledon to Compton— Compledon if you will!
Club members Marc, Karen, Tom and Oscar set up a tennis court on the lawn of Compton Hall and played a match for the benefit of our patients who sat courtside whilst enjoying Strawberries & Cream.
Patients from the Day Therapies Centre, including tennis fans Sheila and Jean, also got the opportunity to take part in a volley or two.
Patient Jean commented: “I never thought I’d be doing this, look at me! It’s fantastic! I can’t believe I’m playing tennis!”
WLTSC Manager Marc commented: “If the patients can’t make it to Wimbledon, we’ll bring Wimbledon to them! Compton holds a very special place in a lot of our members’ hearts, we were so please do be invited to be part of such a special day.”
