One drop shot he won’t forget

Evesham Editorial 7th Jun, 2018   0

A PERSHORE tennis coach took to the skies to raise cash for his local club and encourage people to pick up a racket ahead of the Wimbledon championships next month.

Julian Ramus undertook a sponsored skydive and raised £1,000 for Pershore Tennis Centre.

With Wimbledon fast approaching, Julian and the local club joined up with Bright Ideas for Tennis to raise funds for court resurfacing as well as encourage others to join in with fun on court.

Despite feeling sick all the way down and having to wait nine hours before jumping from the plane, he said it was all worth it.

However, when asked whether he’d do another one, Julian said ‘definitely not!’
