In July, during this year’s Wimbledon Championships, thirty GIYM primary school children received an invitation to attend a very special coaching clinic held on Court 20 at Wimbledon courtesy of The Wimbledon Foundation and HSBC. Judy Murray and GIYM Patron, Tim Henman, taught the eight and nine year old players top tennis skills.
The children attending were from Dundonald Primary School in Merton and from various primary schools in our Lewisham programme.
The Wimbledon Foundation is proud to support Give It Your Max through the unique Ticket Resale scheme and HSBC, the Official Banking Partner of The Championships, very generously match funds the amount raised by the ticket resale over the Fortnight.
Although it was extremely hot for the children, everyone had a great time and we are very grateful to HSBC, Judy and Tim for giving the children such a wonderful tennis experience.
