Some of the biggest names in tennis came together on June 27 for the Tim Henman Foundation Pro-Am Doubles Tournament. Once again pi-top was proud to sponsor the event which helps support the foundation’s outreach, scholarships and hospice programmes. The foundation’s ethos is to better the lives of disadvantaged young people by giving them access to new skills and opportunities, as well as providing them with the best and most sympathetic learning environment, so it’s a natural fit for us here at pi-top.
Amateur players partnered with some of the most famous players in the world, with names such is Tim Henman, Feliciano Lopez, Pat Cash, Jack Sock, John Isner and Jamie Murray taking to the court at the National Tennis Centre in Roehampton, London.
Tournament’s scoring, powered by pi-top
Attendees took their seats to watch a number of top-class tennis matches, with the scoring powered by the pi-top sys, then enjoyed a celebratory dinner before being entertained by the British comedian Michael McIntyre.
Guests included pi-top team members and friends of the company such as South Bank UTC’s teacher Mark Martin, Bernard Dady, Giles Thomas and Peter Wood.
Also on hand was our friend Stephen Carrick-Davies from the Mondo Foundation. Mondo is a UK-based charity that works to provide sustainable support for education and livelihoods in developing countries. They work primary in Nepal, India and Tanzania.
Thank you to the Tim Henman Foundation for organising the Pro-Am Doubles Tournament, and we can’t wait to join you again next year!
