WALL Heath Tennis Club will welcome Robyn Moore as part of her 30-day charity challenge to play 200,000 tennis shots.

The club is one of a selected group of clubs across the country chosen to play host to Robyn as she takes on the challenge at her home club in Hampshire.

Robyn suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder and over the course of the month she will play a minimum of eight hours a day, hitting the ball five million metres to represent one metre for every adult in the UK experiencing mental ill health.

As well as raising money for charity, Robyn, pictured above, hopes to raise awareness about how tennis and sport can help improve people's mental wellbeing.

Money raised as part of the challenge, which got underway on June 1, will be donated to the Bright Ideas for Tennis charity to expand their 'I Play 30' programme, which already provides free tennis sessions for people with learning, sensory and physical disabilities.

With the extra funds, the programme will include sessions for mental health groups as well as supporting ex-service personnel suffering from PTSD and amputees in their rehabilitation.

Robyn will be at the Wall Heath club this Thursday (June 6) and will take her first shot at 8am.

Joining her on the day will be Danny Sapsford (pictured below) - former British Davis Cup player from Bright Ideas Tennis.

Throughout the day the club will support Robyn by organising activities to motivate and support her, including a schoolchildren's tournament from 9.30am to 11am.

AGE UK and guests will be at the club from 11.30am to 12.30pm, there will be cardio sessions with Danny Sapsford from 1pm to 1.30pm (£5 per person), an adult tournament from 1.45pm to 4pm (£5 per person) and a junior fun session from 4 to 5pm.

All money raised on the day will help children and adults locally and nationally to improve their mental wellbeing.

The Mayor or Dudley, Councillor David Stanley, and his consort Councillor Anne Millward will also be stopping by at 1.30pm.

Robyn will serve up her final shots of the challenge at the All England Community ground in Wimbledon on June 30, a day before the Wimbledon championship gets underway.

Club chairman Adrian Hyde said: "We're really proud to be the only local club chosen to be part of this event and support Robyn as she raises awareness and money for such an important cause.

"At the club, we've worked with mental health organisations and have seen first hand the difference being active and playing sport can make in a person's health and wellbeing.

"This is a great way to highlight such an important issue. We wish Robyn the best of luck and look forward to welcoming her to the club.

"I'd urge local people to come along on the day and show Robyn some support as well taking part in the activities available.

"I'd also like to thank everyone involved in organising the event, particularly Lorna Harris who has helped the club become part of this national event."
