Coaching and matches with celebrities

Sessions throughout the day consisted of professional coaching and matches, all co-ordinated by Ben Stannard of My Tennis Events with help from Morgan Stanley and Barclays Tennis Clubs and led by entrepreneur Sabrina Stocker. MIC's Amelia Mist and former tennis pro and model Miles Bugby donned their tennis whites and added some glamour on the court.

Naomi Broady

Naomi Broady, one of Britain's best tennis players was on hand to provide expert tips and coaching to attendees. Naomi has won rounds at both Wimbledon and the US Open. Only last year she played on Wimbledon's famous Centre Court against Spanish Garbine Muguruza. At the age of 29, Naomi has had a long and illustrious career beating top seeded players Jelena Ostapenko, Ana Ivanovic, and Sabine Lisicki, she's also won the WTA Tour Title in doubles at Monterrey.

Ahead of her Wimbledon doubles match this week with fellow Brit Naiktha Bains, Naomi said: “It was a pleasure to take part in this tournament, the sun was shining and it was great to be out on the court, helping to raise funds for an incredible charity. It's always nice to give back and I enjoy sharing my expertise and encouraging people to play tennis. Now it's back to training for Wimbledon."

Celebrities raise cash

Sabrina who also runs the company My Tennis Event said: "I was honoured to be asked to take part in this tournament.

Tennis is one of my biggest passions, I already run competitions across 12 London clubs, predominately for children to take part in. Raising money for Shelter was fantastic, it is such a wonderful cause."

MIC's Amelia was missing many of her cast friends as they were spending the weekend at Glastonbury. "I enjoyed taking part in the tournament; Shelter UK is a charity that helps so many people, and everyone involved had a great day. It beats going to Glastonbury."

A great day was had by all.
