Hendy Group, which has showrooms across the south coast including Portsmouth and Fareham, has sponsored Hampshire's Southern Vipers for a third consecutive season. 

As part of the deal Hendy Group has kitted out the team in Hendy shirts and has provided a pair of sleek vehicles to help them get to training and matches.
