David Lloyd Acton Park hosts ‘Beat The Coaches’ event to raise funds for the UK Sepsis Trust

UKST would like to extend its heartfelt thanks to David Lloyd Acton Park, who hosted a ‘Beat The Coaches’ event on Friday 20th October.

Tennis fans were given an opportunity to play against the pros while raising vital funds to combat this all too often silent killer, sepsis.

Entrants paid £20 to challenge the coaches to a 10-point tiebreak, in both singles and doubles matches, with the event generating over £700.

Bridie Lynch, Tennis Coach Manager, organised, managed and coordinated the event with the help of her great team.

David Lloyd Acton Park General Manager Samantha Murphy said: “Our tennis community in Acton Park is simply amazing and as always they smashed the event on Friday night out of the park. Bridie is the heart of our tennis community and we hugely appreciate everything she does for the club and our members. It was even nicer on this occasion for the club to give back to a charity such as the UK Sepsis Trust.”

UKST Joint CEO Sarah Hamilton-Fairley said: “Friday night went brilliantly well! Everyone seemed to have fun, and the coaches certainly had their work cut out. The UK Sepsis Trust is hugely grateful to David Lloyd Acton Park and Bridie in particular, for making this such a successful evening – the astonishing £700 raised is a spectacular achievement so thank you, thank you!”
