Wreake Valley Academy Celebrate the Opening of Refurbished Tennis Courts

Wreake Valley Academy pupils have been enjoying the opportunity to play on their newly refurbished tennis courts following receipt of grant funding from Tesco. Last week, the courts were officially re-opened by Zoe Roper, Community Champion for Tesco’s and Ian Wood, the manager of Tesco’s in Syston. Wreake Valley received the grant through Tesco’s ‘Bags to Help Scheme’ which sees donations made to good causes as a result of charges made in store for plastic carrier bags. Wreake Valley matched the funding received and are now able to offer the new facilities to their own students and to local community users.
Wreake Valley are now working alongside All-inclusive Tennis, to ensure that they can offer an excellent coaching programme which will allow children and young people to have tennis lessons on Saturday mornings and mid-week.
Alongside this, there will be cardio tennis fitness sessions, women-only sessions and pay & play opportunities.
Academy Business Manager Andy Winter said “We are extremely grateful for the donation from Tesco’s which has enabled us to breath new life into the courts, and to add to the existing facilities that are now available on site. We will continue to seek to develop the site to benefit students and the Syston community”.
