  1. I attended this last year. A great event. Too bad only a handful of people attended. Hopefully they will get more this year.

  2. I remember all the grass courts being full last year but regardless this was a great event. I bought a dining ticket with a friend last year so we could see the club without being members and relax with drinks. Lovely afternoon and supported a really wonderful cause that I knew nothing about. Quite heartbreaking seeing those with this condition.
