Phoenix Weir fundraiser approaches landmark figures as Bingham tennis player returns from Dubrovnik Cup in Croatia
A fundraiser in aid of aspiring tennis professional Phoenix Weir is approaching a landmark figure.
Nearly £10,000 has been raised to financially support Bingham’s Weir, who has held Great Britain’s number one seed across various age groups.
The tennis fanatic, aged 16, is fundraising to help cover the costs of courts, coaching, stringing, clothing, tournaments and travel since starting his full-time journey into the sport.
The fundraiser has been ongoing for five months and the total raised sits at £9,996 following an anonymous donation of £1,000 on Monday.
On the court, Weir has delivered in that time, sealing his third straight title at the Fred Perry Championships in London.
The commentary team declared him the ‘King of the Champagne Court’ at the Brentham Club.
Most recently, Weir was in action in Croatia featuring in the Dubrovnik Cup.
He made the semi-final of the doubles heat but lost out to two top 200 ranked players over a three-set match.
