Tennis Factory in Haiti

As part of the latest phase of equipment rollout to enable people with a physical disability to play wheelchair tennis in a number of centres around the world, Mark Bullock, Suzie Dyrbus and Samanta Bullock visited Haiti to launch a project that will provide tennis equipment for rehabilitation centres and communities.

The design of the equipment makes it perfect to use in non-traditional tennis environments such as rehabilitation centres. The team spent two days in Port au Prince before going to a rehabilitation centre in Cap Haitien for 4 days

Family Fun at Northumberland Club, Jesmond

Despite the rather damp day lots of families came along to the Northumberland Club Fun Day where the Tennis Factory Rally Stations were set up over a number of courts for the visitors of all ages and abilities to come and try.

Tracey Smith, Tennis Coach

Tennis Factory is not only super fun for both children and adults alike, its versatile and easily adaptable, making it a fresh and exciting way to practice the core skills needed in tennis, learning whilst having fun is in my book, a winning combination

One of our favourite comments of the day was from Abby, aged 6 who loved playing on the different Rally Stations and wanted to know where she could buy one for her back garden!

World Tennis Day
