Partnerships are at the heart of everything we do at Will to Win and we feel very fortunate to have found supporting partners whose values and goals we share.
A special and very heartfelt thank you to all our partners. With their continued support we can achieve even more!
THE ROYAL PARKS
The Royal Parks manages London’s eight Royal Parks and everything in them, including sports facilties used by millions of Londoners every year. We consider it a huge privilege to be able to help The Royal Parks in this vital role by running the tennis and sports facilities at Regent’s Park, Hyde Park and Greenwich Park.
LAWN TENNIS ASSOCIATION
The Lawn Tennis Association (LTA) is the national governing body for tennis in the UKand is therefore responsible for all areas of the sport, from elite performance players to coach education, tournaments, facilities and much more. We are particularly grateful for the LTA’s financial support in helping us to drive parks tennis forward in London.
The Tennis Foundation (TF) is Great Britain’s leading tennis charity, with a vision to make the sport as inclusive and accessible to every kind of community. We share the TF’s goal of encouraging people to play and maximise their potential through sport and we work with TF on schools outreach and driving disability tennis.
ALL WIN TENNIS
All Win Tennis is a joint venture between Will to Win Ltd and All Star Tennis Ltd, which joined forces in 2013 and jointly run tennis courts and parks facilities in Wandsworth, based at six different sites across the Borough.
Spreading the word about tennis and making sure that we maximise the number of people who can enjoy the sport depends on public and private tennis establishments working together. Sport, after all, has no barriers. Will to Win works closely with clubs by running tennis programmes for adults and children.
Since we are creating and running sports centres in public parks, having a successful working relationship with local councils is essential to what we do. The nature of the relationship varies depending on the role. In the London Borough of Richmond Upon Thames, for example, we manage all tennis courts across the Borough on the Council’s behalf; while in Wandsworth we are currently working, as part of All Win Tennis (see above) with the Council to create a flagship tennis centre in King George’s Park right in the heart of the Borough.
We are very fortunate at Will to Win to be able to work with some extremely talented coaches. We want to empower our coaches to instill their enthusiasm and skills to others and encourage a lasting love of sport. Our support staff also do everything they can to create an enjoyable and welcoming experience for each and every one of our customers. It is important that every member of the Will to Win team is made to feel like a valued partner in what we are trying to achieve.
