Game, set and match! pi-top keeps score with the Tim Henman Foundation

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.
