HomeTennisJohn Harris Memorial Tournament


Annual Tournament to raise money for the British Heart Foundation

John Harris, one of our most active and well-known members, tragically passed away on our courts on the Saturday between Christmas and New Year 2013.

He collapsed with a cardiac arrest during a game with friends.

To remember and celebrate the life of our friend and teammate, we hold an annual memorial competition on the Saturday between Christmas and New Year.

This is a fun, relaxed mixed-doubles competition where partnerships are drawn on the day.


Thanks to the British Heart Foundation we now have a Defibrillator and have trained a number of members on its use; a great legacy in John’s memory.

We donate the entry fees for this tournament each year to the BHF allowing them to continue their excellent work to prevent lives like John’s being lost.

To date we have raised over £1,700 for the BHF
