This year has seen more Appeti youngsters having the opportunity to visit Wimbledon during the Championships. Over the two weeks over sixty of our players and their families have been able to experience the excitement of actually seeing world class tennis first hand and meeting some of the stars of the game.
Through the Centre’s ballot a number of our juniors and adults won tickets to watch matches on Centre Court as well as the other show courts. Everyone who went came back with stories about the matches they had seen and the atmosphere they had experienced around the ground.
The first of our larger trips saw a group of our keener tennis players from The Canterbury High School spending a day watching tennis on Court 2 and in the practice area. These youngsters had chance to see Djockovic, Tsonga, Del Potro and Heather Watson amongst others.
Their tickets were allocated through the Tennis Foundation and provided the pupils with a very important opportunity to see how the professionals ‘work’.
