Danni Eastwood was thrilled to win our last Facebook competition (in conjunction with the Northern Tennis Club) as the prize was tickets to the semi-finals of the Aegon Manchester Trophy, in which local tennis heroine Naomi Broady was playing. Danni’s youngsters Logan and Aria are tennis-mad so they were delighted that mum had done so well for them!
The three enjoyed a great day out on the penultimate day of the championships, which were eventually won the next day by Zarina Diyas from Kazakhstan, the cause of Naomi’s demise in the semi-finals.
Danni, Aria and Logan are huge fans of Heatons-born Naomi, so they cheered and hollered at every opportunity! Their loyalty and support was rewarded by joining Naomi and her family for post-match lunch in the players’ area, where Naomi kindly signed their caps and tennis balls too. A great memento of a lovely (smashing!) day.
