West Surrey Golf Club in Milford helped raise nearly £15,000 for motor neurone disease (MND) research by hosting the second Surrey Tennis Charity Day – where tennis players swap their rackets for golf clubs.

Twenty-one teams from tennis clubs around Surrey entered the competition, which included a barbecue afterwards, raffle and auction.

The winning team was Surrey LTA, which comprised Justin Sherring, Harry Rock, Matt Moore and Joe Salisbury – the world number one in men’s doubles.

Salisbury won the ‘nearest the gin’ prize on the fifth hole with a fabulous tee shot.

The prize was a bottle of 50 Million Gin – a London dry gin produced by the Village Spirit Collective in Hambledon – and £8 from every bottle sold goes to the MND Association.

More than 40 people bought a bottle of gin on the day.

The golf and tennis event was organised by Paul Jameson – who is living with MND – and the Surrey LTA.

Auction prizes included kit and rackets belonging to Joe Salisbury and Jack Draper, holiday homes in Cornwall and Devon, and the chance to play at the All-England Club in Wimbledon. The auction raised nearly £10,000.

West Surrey Golf Club will host the event again next year.
