The thirteenth annual Osman Tennis Lakesmere Cup was played in glorious British sunshine last Saturday, 8th September. The special uniqueness of this event is the partnership between Lakesmere – provider of the London Olympic Acquatics Centre roof – and Osman Tennis – provider of accessible and community-based tennis for more than twenty years.
Forty-eight young Andy Murray and Laura Robson-wannabes competed in a series of events watched by parents and friends, and organised by a small army of volunteers in support of Osman Tennis’ dedicated team.
