I would like to share a very nice experience I had a few days ago.
I talked to the staff of NEC and shared some experiences about wheelchair tennis and how important for the Tour and for the players their support is.
The text below is from the ITF website written by Marshall Thomas.
” ITF representatives were recently invited to NEC Europe’s headquarters in London to make a presentation about wheelchair tennis to around 50 employees, including NEC Europe President Nobuyuki Yanaginuma.
ITF Wheelchair Tennis Manager Mark Bullock, ITF representatives Dan Absolon (Silver Fund Project) and Sebastian Dietze (Commercial Department) and former professional wheelchair tennis player Samanta Bullock discussed wheelchair tennis in general, the ITF’s role in the sport globally, and the mutual goals that the ITF and NEC are trying to achieve with their long term partnership.
NEC started their involvement in 1991 with the title sponsorship of the NEC Wheelchair Tennis Tour
and has been a loyal and true supporter of the development of the sport ever since.
“It was a very successful event. We were delighted to have the chance to show the tremendous progress the sport has made and to educate the audience about our work and about the passion and enthusiasm in wheelchair tennis, of which NEC has been an invaluable part,” said Mark Bullock. “I am sure that many of those who we talked to were inspired and that we will see some again at our events.”
“We have received very positive feedback from the attendees and were pleased to see many signs of interest,” said Caroline Montagnier-Cannell, Corporate Social Responsibility Executive, NEC Europe Limited. “I hope that this event will help to further implement the partnership between NEC and the ITF in Europe.” ”
