A trio of sporting legends entertained an audience of over 200 at a Sporting Dinner held at Wolverhampton Lawn Tennis & Squash Club.

Former rugby stars Jonathan Davies and George Chuter provided plenty of insight and humour as they took the audience through their illustrious careers, ably assisted by host, former England cricket captain Chris Cowdrey.

The Newbridge-based club had erected a special marquee on their grass courts for the event, which was then followed 48 hours later by their Big Ball attended by over 400 guests.

The events were organised by a team of volunteers from WLTSC’s social committee led by Nicky Willis.

“It was a great night, with Jonathan, George and Chris all providing some excellent stories and anecdotes to keep us entertained,” said WLTSC Chairman John Hollingsworth.

“It was a really successful event, not just for our members to enjoy, but also because we were able to welcome so many new faces as well as businesses from the local area.

“We are confident that we have a really exciting story to tell here at WLTSC, a club with a diverse membership promoting the positive effects of health and fitness in so many different ways.

“Staging events such as this, and linking up with new corporate partners, is something we would really like to develop and expand on in the future.

“I would just like to thank Jonathan, George and Chris, and everyone else involved from WLTSC, for the organisation of such a fantastic event.”

* WLTSC would like to thank all who sponsored and supported both the Sporting Dinner and Big Ball, including JLR, BMW, Greenhouse DAF, Fran Jones and her catering team from Medicine in Codsall for the amazing food, Daksha Patel from Paradigm Events for a superb service providing the table linen and centrepieces and Show Systems for the fantastic marquee.
