Ashburton Hall & Park and GIYM started working in partnership to build schools participation in Tennis within Croydon in Autumn 2019. After undergoing a major regeneration project to re-open the old library, Ashburton Hall which sits in the heart of Ashburton Park is fast becoming a community hub. Since Better leisure have taken over the management they have committed to improvement of the venue including a new café, low cost activities in the park and a full resurface of the tennis courts.
Four schools have initially been selected to receive curriculum time coaching all within 10 minutes of Ashburton Park and all with a Pupil Premium between 35% – 50%. Better leisure offer a subsidised follow on programme in the park at weekends to create the link between tennis in the schools and at the community venue.
The leisure operator Better also manage the GIYM programmes in Barnet and Hillingdon and delivered one of the GIYM community projects providing free school holiday programmes in the Grenfell Towers Community in 2018 & 2019.
