The Tennis Ball

On Saturday 10th November 2018 over 500 guests descended upon the London Hilton Park Lane, to help raise money for two of Britain’s leading tennis charities; Give It Your Max (GIYM) and the IC Philanthropic Programme (ICP).  

The ball was compered by leading Sky Sports presenter Marcus Buckland, with a key note speech by Sir Trevor Mcdonald, who is Patron of both charities.   Leading British comedian Dominic Holland entertained the guests and speed painter Dave Sharp painted two spectacular portraits of Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic which were auctioned that evening and will be signed by both players.


Money was raised through a raffle, donations and auction items.  The live auction was a great success, skilfully directed by the entertaining and highly regarded auctioneer Charlie Ross.  

Tim Henman and Speaker of the House of Commons John Bercow MP were amongst the many personalities present.  Guests danced into the early hours to The All Time All-Stars, 10 piece band. 

Tim Henman, former British Tennis No.1 and GIYM Patron said:
“The Tennis Ball is a wonderful event for two fantastic charities. I’ve worked closely with Give It Your Max and the work they do is really helping to enhance the life of so many children. The money raised from this year’s Tennis Ball will help them to grow their programme to even more areas across the UK.”

Honorary President of The Tennis Ball John Beddington said:

“The fifth Tennis Ball was the most successful we have held yet, raising much needed funds for GIYM and IC Philanthropy – much more than we could have ever expected. This money will go to these two very worthwhile charitable tennis initiatives, giving many children all over the world the opportunity to play tennis.”

The Tennis Ball was supported by Linklaters, Zoo Communications, Maui Jim and City AM.
