I am so proud of everything we have achieved at York St John University Sports Park over the last 5 years. Our long term vision was always to have an indoor tennis facility which was accessible to all and after a lot of meetings, discussions, proposals, business plans etc we finally have our amazing centre. Believe you me, persuading a national governing body and a university to invest over £1 million in your dream is no mean feat.
A massive thank you has to go to York St John University and Rob Hickey Chief Operating Officer for seeing, believing and supporting our vision and the LTA (Paul Sheard, Paul Bennet and countless others) for their “Transforming British Tennis Together” scheme which gave us a vehicle to base our project on.
This project is a success for everyone, York St John University, The LTA, Down The Line Tennis Academy, the community but most of all for Tennis as now we truly have a 365 days a year accessible venue in York for everyone to enjoy the sport I have loved since being a young boy.
