Two Wythenshawe based sports clubs are to receive a cash boost following donations to support development plans.
TalkTalk has donated thousands of pounds to Manchester City Tennis Club and Manchester Baseball Club, both based in Wythenshawe Park
The telecoms company’s support for the two clubs accompanies their long-standing sponsorship of Salford City Football Club. The Manchester City Tennis Club is planning to use the money donated to purchase new kit for players as well as invest in new equipment, whilst the Manchester Baseball Club is using the money to buy new jerseys for next season.
Will Banks, Tennis Coach at the Manchester City Tennis Club said: “We are a welcoming, social and friendly club open to anyone looking to get involved in tennis. The money donated by TalkTalk will go a long way with supporting and developing the club.”
Ian Marchment, Club President at Manchester Baseball Club commented: “We’re thrilled to have received this donation from TalkTalk. Last year was challenging for the club, but we’ve since seen a massive increase in new players coming to the sport which is exciting for us as a club and Baseball in the UK. The money donated by TalkTalk will help us buy the team new jerseys for next season”.
Becki Smith, General Manager, Ultrafast at TalkTalk, added: “With lockdown restrictions easing, there has never been a more important time to make sure sports clubs can continue the amazing work they do to bring the local community together.
“This isn’t the first time we’ve worked with sports clubs – here in Greater Manchester, we have a long-standing relationship with Salford City Football Club having sponsored them for three years. Not only is the work we’re doing with local sports clubs across the city a welcomed extension of this partnership but it’s also a celebration of TalkTalk’s new Future Fibre plans coming to the city.”
