The overall winners were Karyn Slatter and Gee Farnsworth, both regular plays at Corby. They were presented with a trophy and each received an Elena Baltacha Academy of Tennis T-shirt Steve Brett from Withers Sports Shop very kindly donated part of their takings on finals day to the EB Foundation and a raffle for 2 top of the range racquets also added to the total amount of over £600 raised. Jill McTaggart, a member of staff at Corby said “I am very pleased that we can help EBAT to continue the fantastic work started by Bally, Nino and their coaching team. I was honoured to know Bally as a friend and I’m sure the children of her Academy will also show the same fighting spirit that she was renowned for. Bally will never be forgotten”
