Proud to support Skipton Tennis CentreDecember 2, 2020
Our Skipton office are supporters of the local tennis centre who have been doing their utmost to continue helping its members and the wider community.
During lockdown, Skipton Tennis Centre immediately started supporting local schools that were open as a hub for children of key workers and delivered three afternoons of sports for 17 consecutive weeks.
The centre also used digital communication such as emails and weekly texts to members and beyond, as well as provided PE learning via Microsoft Teams for schools.
They also managed to have their a busy holiday camp which saw 500 children take part over seven weeks, all while adhering to strict government guidelines.
Walker Foster would like the praise the centre for its hard work in enabling local tennis to get back up and running, as well as the fantastic work in the community.
We have actively contributed to their Sponsored Players Initiative, which saw children from local schools who would not usually be able to join the club because of financial reasons or difficulties at home.
Managing Director Keith Hardington said: “It has been great to see an organisation helping the community in such uncertain times. They have gone beyond duty to help local school children and once lockdown was over, provided an effective plan of action to get people enjoying tennis safely again.”
