Nick Brooks, the head academy coach at Berkhamsted Elite Tennis Academy, is planning a marathon 12-hour non-stop doubles charity tennis match this Sunday at Berkhamsted Tennis Club.

The match is being played to raise money for The SMA Trust. Spinal Muscular Atrophy is a genetic neuromuscular disease.

The tennis club is encouraging people to come along to cheer him on, donate a few pennies and sign-up to join him in a match.

SMA is a condition close to Nick’s heart. One in 40 to 60 people is an SMA carrier, approximately 1.6 million people in the UK, and that includes Nick’s beloved sister, Anna.
