FORMER ENGLAND RUGBY CAPTAIN and England 2003 World Cup winner Mike Tindall MBE has formally announced that he will host 'The ISPS HANDA Mike Tindall 2nd Annual Celebrity Golf Classic' on Monday 19th May 2014.

Last year’s inaugural event at Manning’s Heath Golf Club raised £50K for Rugby for Heroes. The event will raise funds in aid of the rugby and military charity Rugby for Heroes of which Mike Tindall is Patron.

MT13, who are promoting and organising the celebrity golf classic, are also delighted to confirm and announce ISPS HANDA as title sponsor and ARTEMIS as event sponsors; The two major sponsorship deals were both negotiated and secured by sports & entertainment agency SEL UK.
