The heavens may have opened on Saturday afternoon with torrential rain hammering Lincoln till early Sunday morning.
However the elements could not deter Mark Rimmington and his friends from playing a 24 hour tennis marathon at the Eastgate Club in aid of Breast Cancer Care.
Coach Simon Taylor said: “They played right through the rain. Everyone brought them pizzas and hot chocolate to keep them going throughout the night.
“They raised £700 which exceeded their original target of £500.”
Everyone at SportsLinc says congratulations Mark and friends on a magnificent achievement. Well done.
