Clevedon Lawn Tennis Club held their annual vets tournament recently to raise more money for charity.

A total of 15 pairs from Bristol, Wiltshire and North Somerset took part, with John Anderson and Alice Price (Henleaze) coming out on top.

They beat Clevedon's Mike Maiden and Brenda Plummer in a one-set tie-break final, before Steve Wells, founder and co-ordination of the Tennis Vets Society handed over a cheque for £600 to Alan Richardson, from Weston Alzheimer's Society.

Since being founded in 2009, the society has raised over £17,000 for local charities.

Clevedon Lawn Tennis Club is on Princes Road and their next free open day is being held on Sunday July 7, for adults and juniors to come along and try the sport.
