Annington, the company responsible for the refurbishment of homes off Ox Carr Lane, has donated to ABC Sports Clubs in Strensall, allowing the club to purchase new tennis equipment which will be used for coaching local schools, as well as the club.

ABC Sports Clubs run a coaching service to the local community of Strensall, and during the holiday periods, the organisation run camps during October half term, Easter and Summer, aimed at keeping the children of Strensall active and engaged throughout the year. The new equipment includes mini tennis nets and tennis balls which will be used across the wider coaching team and enable a wide range of children to benefit from the kit.

Ben Orton, Director and Founder of ABC-Tennis-UK and ABC-Sports Clubs, comments: “As a grass roots coaching service, this donation from Annington is gratefully received, it supports our mission to bring tennis into the PE curriculum of primary schools and make it more accessible to children of all backgrounds. Annington and ourselves are very aligned with our values and aims, both striving to invest in generations to come. I’m looking forward to getting the team out with the new kit and continuing to create a place where young people in York can thrive from a structured learning environment while having fun!”

Stacy Whitehead, Marketing Manager at Annington, adds: “We’re pleased that our donation can help Ben with his goal of making tennis more available to children across York. Annington is always happy to be a part of strengthening community ties and being able to do it so close to our Strensall development is even better. We hope our current and future residents will be inspired to get out on the court.”
