Tealby ladies held their annual ladies charity tennis tournament, when 36 players took to six courts, both at the Rasen Road club and around the village.

After enjoying a morning of tennis, it was back to the club house for lunch and the presentation of prizes.

Pictured above are the winners from each of the six courts - from left, Joy Purkiss, Gabrielle Ellis, Nicky Madden, Wendy Yardley, Henrietta Edwards and Clare Strawson, with organiser Sarah Buckley, far right.

This year they were raising money for the Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance and A Smile for a Child, a small grant-giving charity helping disabled and disadvantaged children across the UK participate in sport, mainly through helping provide much-needed equipment.

The event raised almost £700, which will be split equally between the two charities.
