Jardine Jaguar Wolverhampton has served up a car-full of tennis equipment to Graiseley Primary School, as part of Jaguar UK’s nationwide campaign with The Championships, Wimbledon 2021 to establish the next generation of tennis talent.
The campaign kicked off in June with a surprise visit to Malmesbury Primary School’s playground by tennis ambassador Kyle Edmund and TV presenter, author and mental health advocate Frankie Bridge, replicating the famous grounds of SW19. Now, Jaguar UK’s tennis kit drop is touring the nation and Jardine Jaguar Wolverhampton is the latest to join in support.
This nationwide initiative by Jaguar engages with local schools and communities, donating tennis nets, rackets and balls that will encourage children to partake in the physical activity recommended to help them recover from a year lost to the pandemic.
"Sport brings everyone together and we’re proud to be able to offer our support to Graiseley Primary School to bring the passion and excitement of Wimbledon to the school playing field," says Adam McCullagh, Jardine Jaguar Wolverhampton General Manager.
“It’s wonderful to give the children an opportunity to get together again with their friends and have some fun after what has been a very difficult year for so many. In collaboration with Jaguar UK, it’s our way of giving a little something back and bringing joy to the local community.”
Adam arrived at Graiseley Primary School in a special Wimbledon-branded all-electric Jaguar I-PACE stocked full of tennis equipment and handed over the tennis nets, rackets, and balls, to the group of enthusiastic children.
“We’re extremely grateful to the team at Jardine Jaguar Wolverhampton and to Jaguar UK for their support," smiles Sharifan Nasa, Head Teacher at Graiseley Primary School. "This equipment is greatly appreciated and supports our aim to encourage our pupils to make healthy lifestyle choices and get active. It has been such a difficult year for our students and their families, and the children cannot wait to get outside and make use of the new equipment. There is such a buzz around the Wimbledon Championships, and we’ll certainly be replicating that excitement with our new kit.”
