November 2009 - The Appeti Tennis Centre achieves Clubmark and Beacon Status.

The Appeti Tennis Centre, Canterbury are very pleased to have their hard work within the community recognised in two ways.

Firstly over the summer the Centre achieved their Tennis Club Mark. An award that recognises the contribution we make to sport across the county and in particular to developing younger players and British Tennis in general. All areas of our programme were considered and we are proud that we met the national standard for the service that we offer customers.

Secondly, as a site we have just been upgraded to full Beacon status by The Tennis Foundation. This organisation aims to get more people playing tennis across the country both recreationally and competitively. Therefore Beacon sites have to be open for general public use and offer quality coaching with competitive opportunities. As a centre these values are also important to us and therefore are very pleased to be selected as a Beacon facility.

We are very proud to have achieved both of these within the same year.
