On Wednesday 31st May 2017, Delta Tennis Centre played host to the second LD Celebratory Tennis day organised by Special Olympics Swindon, in partnership with the Tennis Foundation and Wilts LTA.
As with the previous year both the Wednesday (adult) and Sunday (junior) tennis groups came together to participate in a number of fun and inclusive activities set up by coaches Alan Elbourn, Richard Overton and Peter Dodds. Each participant gave 100% and there was lots of skill and effort displayed throughout the afternoon by everyone which was amazing to see.
After the games had been played there was a presentation and certificates were given out to every participant. Medals and other prizes were given to the athletes who had scored the most points during the games.
A big thank you must go to all of the coaches and volunteers who made the afternoon a great success and a special well done to the athletes for putting in such an amazing effort.
