Second Set for Tennis Sponsorship
Swansea Based law firm, Peter Lynn and Partners, have renewed their sponsorship deal with Swansea Tennis Centre for a second year to help up and coming tennis stars.
The centre, which is a not for profit local enterprise, is one of the leading indoor court venues in the UK and trains a wide range of players from beginners to the more advanced from all over the local area.
General Manager, Owain Rees, said, “Like many sports, we have been severely hit by the pandemic and have seen the majority of our season written off, so to retain the support of Peter Lynn and Partners to help train up and coming players is of immense value to us.”
One such player is 12-year-old Ollie Page, a Welsh Champion for his age group and UK number 1 at 12 and under age group.
Ollie has been training 12+ hours a week at the centre, and the support from Peter Lynn and Partners will help him continue to train and hopefully go on to bigger and better things.
Ollie’s trainer, Francesca Lewis, said, “While this season has been affected due to local and national lockdowns, Ollie has still made some significant achievements including:
– Reaching the Semi-Finals of the national youth series under 12’s event Featuring the top 32 boys in the UK in August
– Reached the last 32 in the under 12’s European championships in France in Feb 2020- featuring the best players in Europe in this age group
– Has been selected for UK National age group training
The sponsorship is the latest in a series of grassroots sports partnerships undertaken by Peter Lynn and Partners, something integral to the community work of the firm.
“We work with a range of local sports clubs from rugby, to football to cricket and more,” said Nia Godsmark, partner and commercial lawyer, “so to be able to help the next generation of tennis stars fits well with our corporate social responsibility strategy and we wish the players every success.”
