On Friday 9th July, ahead of the final weekend of Wimbledon 2021, Sinclair Jaguar Swansea served up a car-full of crucial tennis equipment to Penclawdd Primary, as part of Jaguar UK’s nationwide campaign with The Championships, Wimbledon 2021 to establish the next generation of tennis talent.

The campaign kicked off in June with a surprise visit to Malmesbury Primary School’s playground by tennis ambassador Kyle Edmund and TV presenter, author and mental health advocate Frankie Bridge, replicating the famous grounds of SW19. Now, Jaguar UK’s tennis kit drop is touring the nation and Sinclair Jaguar Swansea is the latest to join in support.

This nationwide initiative by Jaguar engages with local schools and communities, donating tennis nets, rackets and balls that will encourage children partake in the physical activity recommended to help them recover from a year lost to the pandemic.

Glenn Vaughan, Sales Manager 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 Vaughan arrived at Penclawdd Primary in a special Wimbledon-branded all-electric Jaguar I-PACE stocked full of tennis gear.  Glenn Vaughan handed over the crucial equipment to Headteacher Louisa Reynolds-Milnes and an expectant group of enthusiastic children.

Louisa Reynolds-Milnes, Headteacher said: “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 in our ranks.”  

Rawdon Glover, Managing Director, Jaguar Land Rover UK added: “The recent pandemic has brought huge disruption to children and young people’s lives. In many cases children are much less active than before. With everything unlocking, we at Jaguar are wanting to encourage children to return to regular exercise and enjoy playing sport collectively. Through our partnership with The All England Lawn Tennis Club, we are proud to be delivering a national programme that will help build a tennis legacy to communities who need support the most.”
