EILEEN Blackburn, partner and head of business recovery at leading mid-tier accountancy firm, French Duncan, has been appointed to act on behalf of  Serve & Volley Ltd, organiser of the cancelled Champions of Tennis tournament which was scheduled to begin yesterday.

Says a spokesperson: “This year’s unavoidable cancellation of the four-day event in Edinburgh was as a result of problems regarding the roof for the structure.

“Despite strenuous efforts on the part of the organisers, a workable solution could not be found. With reluctance, a final decision to cancel the event had to be taken.”

Blackburn said: “It is such a shame that this popular tournament, with top players from the tennis world has experienced technical problems which unfortunately, resulted in the cancellation of the tournament and disappointment to tennis fans.

“The director of Serve & Volley has worked incredibly hard to try and stage such a prestigious event in the heart of Edinburgh which could have generated income to local business in the Stockbridge area.

“We are working closely with Serve & Volley to expedite the best possible solution for all parties concerned.

“I will be contacting all suppliers to the tournament and other interested parties as soon as practicably possible and can confirm that sponsor firm, Brodies LLP, has kindly agreed to refund the cost of tickets to individual ticket holders who cannot claim through their debit or credit card companies.”
