Armed Forces Tennis Championships 17
CDS Defence Support’s CEO, Fergus Bailie, and Managing Director, Richard Bradley, attended the Inter Service A Tennis Championships at Edgbaston Priory Club.
This exciting event saw many serving personnel competing across 7 grass courts in both single and double matches for the Championships. CDS Defence Support is a proud sponsor of this event in line with their commitment to the UK MoD’s “Whole Force Approach”, which leverages the value that is achieved by the successful collaboration between industry and military personnel both full time and reservists.
Fergus and Richard attended a lunch hosted by Commodore Steve Pearson, Chairman of the Armed Forces Tennis, and thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to discuss the event with likeminded people. Richard commented that CDS is delighted to be associated with Armed Forces tennis and very proud to have been a supporter of this annual event over the last 10 years.
Fergus was then invited to present the awards to the winners of the Championships on the Tuesday evening, an event that gave CDS an opportunity to acknowledge just how high the standard of service tennis remains.
Following the event, CDS received a letter from Steve Pearson saying that; “We were absolutely delighted with the success of the 2017 ISA’s held over the two days at Edgbaston Priory Tennis Club, which was only possible due to the continued support of CDS. The sponsorship and support CDS provides is vital for us to deliver such a successful event and we very much hope that we are able to continue to develop our important relationship.”
