Harry Redknapp will be among the attendees at the The ‘Swing Against Cancer’ Charity Golf Series finale, which will feature sporting legends from football, rugby, and golf, on October 26 at Jumeirah Golf Estates.

The former Tottenham, Portsmouth, and Southampton manager, whose most recent job was as manager of Championship side Birmingham city, is set to be one of the star attractions at the event, which will include a celebrity Q&A and a chance for pro and amateur golfers to compete against celebrities for two grand prizes.

The Swing Against Cancer Charity Golf Series 2017, launched by Sixteen10 and Worlswide Golf, follows on from the success of the Mike Clark Charity Golf Day, which over four years has raised more than US$125,000 for the Friends of Cancer Patients Society (FoCP), and over $50,000 in 2016 alone.

Clark, a former UAE resident, golfing enthusiast, and Jumeirah Golf Estates employee, tragically passed away from cancer aged 30 on October 16, 2012 – hence the name Sixteen10.

This year’s event will help raise much needed funds for the Friends of Cancer Patients society, and will go directly towards the treatment of two UAE residents, Waleed, a 37-year-old man suffering from rectal cancer, and a 2-year-old boy suffering from leukaemia.

Individual tickets for the evening event are only AED 395, and a table of 10 just AED 3,500. Tickets can be reserved by calling +971 56 442 1067 or by emailing [email protected]
