Everything’s peachy for tennis event

Have your say

TENNIS might be associated with strawberries and cream, but these workmen were more interested in a peach as preparations continue for a legends tournament in Stockbridge.

The countdown to John McEnroe and Tim Henman – amongst other famous names – visiting the Capital is well under way, and Caroline Swan was on hand to serve up Scotty Brand strawberries to the builders.

More than 10,000 fans are expected to flock to Raeburn Place for the four-day Brodies Champions of Tennis tournament, which gets under way on Thursday.

A temporary court has been installed, complete with a roof to fend off that other tennis tradition – the pouring rain.
