A SIXTY-year-old man will play a sponsored 12-hour squash marathon and is looking for opponents.

David Ballard, from Prickwillow, pictured, will play from 10am until 10pm at the Paradise Centre, Ely on Sunday.

Mr Ballard used to play squash at county level in Devon.

He said: "Players of all ages and standard are welcome to play me. I don't like losing but it will be very hard to win all of my games."

Mr Ballard is chairman of Ely Rugby Club and plays for the club's second and third teams.

The money he raises will buy kit, balls and equipment for the club's junior sides.

# To sponsor Mr Ballard you can call him on 07922 105277 and anyone wishing to play him can just turn up on the day.
