For the second year running, Barclays Spaces for Sports will benefit from Barclays five-year sponsorship of the ATP World Tour Finals at The O2, London.
A total of 750 young people who use Barclays Spaces for Sports sites across Greater London and beyond have received free tickets to watch matches at today's afternoon session.
Barclays Spaces for Sports is a community investment programme which uses sport to revitalise disadvantaged communities and tackle key social issues in countries around the world where Barclays operates. It supports more than 30 different sports, including tennis, at its 200 sites across the UK.
A group of young people from the West End Tennis Centre in Colchester, Essex will participate in a coaching session on one of the practice courts with Boris Becker, former tennis world number one, and Mark Petchey, sports commentator at UK broadcaster Sky.
Boris, who is also an ambassador for the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals, said: "It's great to meet young people with enthusiasm for the game.
"I'll be telling them that they must make sure they keep playing so they can make the most of all the benefits they'll get from playing a great sport like tennis."
A short film featuring Barclays Spaces for Sports will be shown on the big screens at The O2 during every match of the tournament. The video is available on the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals section of Barclays.com, which can be accessed using the link on the right.
Barclays is the title sponsor of the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals, the largest indoor tennis tournament in the world. This year's event takes place from 21 to 28 November. Only the top eight singles players and doubles teams across the 62 ATP World Tour tournaments and the four Grand Slams earn the right to compete in tournament.
