surrey COUNTY TRAINING squad Project supported by supporting tennis locally to grow the game Follow us on Surrey.Tennis @surrey_tennis The colours of Gold and Blue would be the primary colours. This rich deep colour is used to evoke the heritage of Tennis Surrey. David Cianfarani, County Chair, said: “We want to maintain the great work that we are currently doing with the different competitions and hope to increase the standard of tennis players within the County. Surrey Tennis encompasses players of all ages and abilities and we strive to make tennis more inclusive. One way we have done this is by running the inaugural wheelchair tennis competition at this year’s County Championships, which was very well received”. Roy Staniland, County Secretary at Surrey Tennis and British Tennis Development Committee Member, says: “This rebrand is a fantastic opportunity for us as a County to bring the whole community closer together. We feel that the new logo design helps to bring Surrey Tennis into the digital age and will appeal to our younger members and coaches.” Surrey Tennis views the rebrand as a way of finding a new identity that all the clubs, coaches and players can more easily identify with. wilson surrey leagues Captain’s guide Helping you to organise your Surrey league team. The new identity has already been applied to County kit, court banners (top right) and the Captain’s guide (see p.27) The Surrey Tennis Council agreed that not only should the new logo embrace the current social media and digital age, but that we should increase our social media marketing activities as well. Surrey Tennis has therefore boosted its social media activity to improve communications with members, clubs and players across the County and hopes to engage and interact with more people directly as a result. The new visual identity is explained by Lewis Woodham, Surrey Competitions & Social Media Manager: “Surrey Tennis is one of the oldest Counties in the UK for tennis. We believe the new logo, which is a partial representation of a shield, incorporates that history, but brings a contemporary feel at the same time. It is great for Surrey Tennis to have a new image that will appeal to younger generations coming through. The Surrey Tennis rebrand will allow us to improve our relationships with players, parents, coaches, clubs and fans in the County.” Follow Surrey Tennis: Surrey.Tennis @surrey_tennis surrey tennis magazine 5
