A tennis club has helped raise hundreds of pounds for Alzheimer’s Society.

Flitwick and Ampthill Tennis Club held its Annual David Olney Tournament in memory of David Olney who was a club member for 60 years, RAF champion and eight times Bedfordshire singles county champion. David also played for Great Britain Veterans and was twice Great Britain over 45s doubles champion.

The many spectators were treated to some high quality and entertaining tennis with Harry Mabbit and Jack Devereux winning the men's event and Jolanta Hawryluk and Sophie Cable victorious in the ladies event.

The tournament raised £668 for the Alzheimer's Society and David’s wife Sally Olney presented the prizes and accepted the proceeds from Head Coach Terry Mabbitt on behalf of the charity.
