Sinclair Jaguar Swansea Donates Tennis Equipment

Another Wimbledon has come and gone leaving its own legacy and here at Sinclair Jaguar Swansea we are hoping to add our own piece of history by helping the next generation of budding tennis players.

Millions of Britons get absorbed by Wimbledon fever every year, and while the majority of us may be too old to dedicate our lives to becoming the next Roger Federer or Serena Williams, there are countless youngsters out their waiting for an opportunity and hoping to make their own imprint on the game. For some there are difficult obstacles to navigate whether that’s access to courts or owning equipment and the Sinclair Jaguar Swansea team are committed to doing what they can to help youngsters overcome these hurdles.

On Friday 9th July, ahead of the final weekend of Wimbledon 2021, Sinclair Jaguar Swansea arrived at Penclawdd Primary in a Wimbledon-branded all-electric Jaguar I-PACE. Inside the electric SUV was an abundance of equipment including tennis rackets, balls, nets, Jaguar water bottles and much more.

This was the latest in a long line of events that Jaguar have been involved in surrounding Wimbledon. Tennis ambassador Kyle Edmund and TV presenter, mental health advocate and author, Frankie Bridge kicked off the tour with a visit to Malmesbury Primary School back in June. The tour has now spread across the nation and here at Sinclair Jaguar Swansea we are delighted to play a pivotal role in the initiative.

Our Sales Manager, Glenn Vaughan said “Like everyone in the country we’ve been transfixed by the action on the courts at Wimbledon this year, and we’re only too happy to share some of our enthusiasm with the local community. The last year has been especially hard on children, isolated from their friends and missing out on crucial learning and physical activity, so anything we can do to brighten their days and establish a lifelong hobby – or even career – is extremely valuable for us.”

Glenn was proud to arrive at Penclawdd Primary in the specially designed Wimbledon branded I-PACE and it was a huge privilege to be able to hand out the equipment to all the delighted children. The schools Headteacher, Louisa Reynolds-Milne expressed her gratitude by saying, “We’re extremely grateful to the team at Sinclair Jaguar Swansea and to Jaguar UK for their support. This tennis equipment will bring real joy to our kids after a tough year and we’ll be keeping an eye out for the next Johanna Konta or Andy Murray.”

It has been a joy to be involved in such an inspiring initiative and the whole Sinclair Jaguar Swansea team look forward to seeing and hearing all about the development and enjoyment the children have got from the equipment.
