Tennis Wales announced this week that Chiltern Sports have confirmed a new sponsorship agreement with the National Governing body of Welsh Tennis. The sponsorship agreement will see funding directly invested into growing the recently launched Chiltern British Tour competition, taking place at the Windsor Lawn Tennis Club in Penarth, South Wales in 2019.
Simon Johnson, interim CEO for Tennis Wales said
“We’re delighted to partner with Chiltern Sports for 2019. The sponsorship from Chiltern Sports will go directly into growing the recently established British Tour competition, providing elite competition for male & female British tennis players here in Wales. The improved event will feature increased prize money for players and allow more people to compete than in previous years”.
Andy Burrell, Director of Chiltern Sports commented
“Chiltern Sports have been constructing fantastic tennis facilities across Wales for a number of years. We’re delighted to be able to invest sponsorship into great events such as the Chiltern British Tour competition at Windsor Penarth and look forward to seeing it go from strength to strength in future years”.
The Chiltern Sports British Tour competition will take place next spring, with up & coming British tennis players competing in South Wales for highly valuable ranking points & prize money on the artificial clay courts. The competition will be hosted for the second year by the Windsor Lawn Tennis Club in Penarth.
Club Chairman Anthony Phillips said
“Our first event in 2018 saw some of the best tennis players in Wales competing here. We had over 500 people spectating and enjoying the event and with this increased support from Chiltern, next year is going to be an even bigger spectacle of tennis. We’d love to see more people from the local community coming along and enjoying the tennis”.
