As Scotland’s leading independent estate and letting agency, we’ve been helping and working with local residents and communities across the country for more than 30 years. During that time, we’ve come to understand the vital importance of promoting and supporting people beyond their property needs. As a respected and well-known Scottish business, we feel it is our duty to give back to the communities in which we operate, and so we chose to support Tennis Scotland‘s programme to introduce school age children to the beloved sport.
Mike Cohen – Tennis Scotland Regional Development Manager (West) commented on the impact of Clyde’s sponsorship to their organisation:
“Clyde Property have teamed up with Tennis Scotland to help sponsor grassroots school tennis programmes across Glasgow. This is done in partnership with local clubs who produce an action plan around delivering tennis in local schools. Clyde Property then help fund these action plans to allow children to receive high quality coaching at their local school. Clyde Property also sponsor the Glasgow Primary Schools Tennis Cup, which this year has over 20 primary schools taking part.”
We are currently working with three local tennis clubs:
Western Tennis Club
We are delighted to announce that we have continued our sponsorship of Western Tennis Club on Hyndland Road, enabling them to deliver school coaching in the local West End area, as well as providing outreach in Maryhill and Summerston.
Commenting on our established relationship, the Club said: “Thanks to financial sponsorship from Clyde Property, we have been able to offer free tennis and squash coaching to P4 school children from a variety of schools in the local Glasgow area.”
We’re incredibly proud and honoured to be part of such a fantastic initiative, helping the younger residents of Glasgow to get involved in friendly, competitive activities and socialise with their peers in a safe, fun and healthy environment.
At the beginning of May, 24 children from six schools across the city got their first taste of tennis at the Western Tennis Club. We’re happy to report that a great time was had by all! Here they are getting some pro starter tips from their fantastic coaches…
Bearsden Lawn Tennis Club
Founded in 1887, Bearsden Lawn Tennis Club is a thriving club in the picturesque town of Bearsden. Providing excellent facilities for both social and team players of all ages and skill levels, the Club provides all-year-round tennis with four floodlit artificial grass courts that where recently resurfaced in 2013. Members can also benefit from a full-time tennis professional and an excellent coaching programme that caters for players of all ages and abilities.
Clyde Property is delighted to continue supporting this fantastic local Club by providing financial sponsorship throughout 2017. If you’re a resident of Bearsden, why not pop along to view the Club and try your hand at a new sport this summer. No matter the weather (or skills!), you’re sure to have fun at this friendly and supportive club.
Whitecraigs Lawn Tennis & Sports Club
Just this month, we began sponsoring Whitecraigs Lawn Tennis & Sports Club, located in the popular and idyllic East Renfrewshire town of Giffnock. Sponsorship is incredibly important to community clubs such as Whitecraigs, enabling them to develop their coaching and membership programmes and provide the very best facilities for the benefit of the wider community.
Set for yet another active season of competition in 2017, Whitecraigs is a popular, family-friendly club providing a range of sporting and social facilities for all ages. Upcoming events at Whitecraigs include the Annual Club BBQ on Saturday 3rd June, Junior Tennis Summer Camps from 28th June, and the Scottish Seniors LTA Tournament from 13th-16th July. Great opportunities to get involved and make new friends in your local area.
