The annual NKF Tennis Event at Tennisclub Grasshopper in Z├╝rich is a highlight for tennis players, tennis fans and tennis wannabes at the firm. The event gets going mid afternoon. Singles and doubles matches alternate throughout the evening sometimes in a fierce battle for victory, sometimes in a brave attempt just to get the ball over the net! Beginner’s luck gets a lot of laughs at the expense of those who think they really can play. Often the weekly players are beaten by the newcomers with a racquet in one hand and a beer in the other. The NKF tennis coach Raphael Lustenberger, number 5 in Switzerland, runs mini training sessions all afternoon, giving professional tips and tricks to our players. As the sun goes down and the adrenelin slows, we enjoy a barbeque and a few cool drinks.
