Henman serves up an ace for sports charities
4:00pm Friday 20th September 2013 in News
Tennis player Tim Henman completed a 450-mile charity bike ride on Tuesday at the Kia Oval in London.
The former British number one, who lives in Aston Tirrold, took on the 12-day ride with former England and Liverpool footballer Jamie Redknapp, former England cricket captain Andrew Strauss and TV pundit Mark Nicholas.
Henman’s bike, in Wimbledon green and purple, is up for auction. He said: “The bike was fantastic. I couldn’t believe how light it was, how easy it was.”
Money from the ride and auction will go to the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation and Chance to Shine.
