The tennis wall at Lilian Baylis Community Hub offers disadvantaged young people greater access to tennis coaching and practice facilities. Another tennis wall is also being built at the White Hart Lane Community Sports Centre in North London, home to another Barclays Spaces for Sports site.
David Rutley, Global Retail Banking Marketing Director at Barclays, said: “We’re delighted to be able to support community tennis in this way as well as supporting the elite level of the game through our sponsorship of the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals, which promises to be a great competition.”
The tournament - which takes place in London’s O2 arena from 22 to 29 November - is the climax of the men's professional tennis season and features the top eight singles players and doubles teams in the world.
The event will feature players such as Roger Federer, Raphael Nadal, Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic.
