Ex British tennis players Danny Sapsford and Luke Milligan visited King’s Ely to help students improve their skills on the court.

The visit was organised by Seb Scaux, King’s Ely’s tennis coach and who runs the 10iS Academy.

King’s Ely students and players from the 10iS Academy enjoyed coaching sessions with the ex Davis Cup duo, followed by exhibition matches. Players also had the opportunity to get involved and play doubles matches with Luke and Danny.

Chanre Bond, head of tennis at King’s Ely, said: “Danny and Luke’s visit was a really inspiring event and it was fantastic to see so many players on the court eager to improve their game.

“Money raised from the event will be going towards various projects, including coaching opportunities for people with autism and learning difficulties.

“Thank you to everyone who made the event such a great success.”

The 10iS Academy is running a children’s tennis summer holiday camp at King’s Ely, starting on July 30.
