Islington Tennis Centre and Gym have been awarded funding by Middlesex Tennis to develop their TRAIN performance programme for 2019. The funds will specifically be used for our junior performance programme, for a core group of talented juniors aged 7-10.

The funding will be used to support the existing programme and also expand the offer, going towards some of the best juniors in Middlesex.

Islington Tennis Centre and Gym is only one of a handful of venues to receive the funding as part of the new Middlesex Tennis performance funding network. The key to securing this significant funding was the relationship built between the tennis centre and Middlesex Tennis, with Islington Tennis Centre and Gym becoming a training base for county training sessions, the huge growth of the tennis programme, the new tournaments introduce and the high level of players now training at the tennis centre, with a number of Islington Tennis Centre and Gym players now in the top 10 in the South of England.

We look forward to showcasing the future developments of the programme and hopefully sharing stories of future tennis stars at Islington Tennis Centre and Gym.

If you are interested in joining our performance programme or have a child that would like to get into tennis please contact Jo on joachim.treasurer@gll.org.
