Visit of the Earl of Wessex on May 10, 2018

In 2018, the Earl of Wessex is undertaking a year-long programme of engagements aimed at generating support for The Duke of Edinburgh's International Award. Through a combination of DofE events, Real Tennis tournaments and fundraising activity, His Royal Highness will enable a new generation of young people to start their DofE journey in the UK and abroad.

On May 13, 2018 Prince Edward visited Newmarket Real Tennis Club. The visit was organised with DofE by then club Chairman, Sam Sheppard. After introductions to local dignitaries, the Earl went on court to watch a Masterclass given by Club Professional, Andrew Knibbs, to pupils from Newmarket Academy and met with the young people.

He then played 3 sets of doubles tennis. Match 1 with James Allen, Sean Milbank and Oliver Phillips from RSM, which was sponsoring the event throughout the UK.

Then it was the turn of the NRTC members:

Match 2 - The Earl played with Jonathan Agar versus Mark Elliott and Chris Hollingsworth
Match 3 - The Earl played with Julia Scott versus John Shneerson and Ben Turner

After the matches the Earl presented a Certificate about the event to Andrew Knibbs..
and a Commemorative Racket to Club Secretary, John Saville

A group photo was taken of the Prince with all members present, and their guests. This was followed by informal conversations with those present.

You can read the Earl’s own account of the visit, including his regret at not making our Winning Gallery Horseshoes jingle, at: By scrolling up and down from there you can read about his visits to other clubs.
