2 years ago we launched ProV3 - a beneficial initiative of Halton UK's charitable projects with the objective of supporting the careers of aspiring but vulnerable professional tennis players outside the WTA/ATP top 250. Vulnerabilities include high rates of burning/dropping out, high stress/anxiety due to lack of resources, low incomes due to minimal prize money at lower tier professional events, and perhaps being ill equipped and/or unprepared for life after tennis.
We aim to achieve this through pursuing our HaltonUK definition of 'winning': To identify, gather and mobilise all our resources to go as far as we can. In doing this our behaviours are driven by 3 key values (3V):
Excellence – the
quality of being outstanding in all we do
Community – shared learning, experience and support
High Performance team-work - strong interdisciplinary approach, clear roles and responsibilities, celebrating success and willing each along [The image of a lone piece of charcoal struggling to stay alight versus a glowing bed where each piece heats and is heated]We are absolutely delighted that the support Beth has received through ProV3 has contributed to her being in a position this year to play at Wimbledon and it has been an absolute pleasure for all of us at Halton/Everyball Tennis to be part of her journey. We wish her all the best today with her mixed partner Scott Clayton as they take on Venus Williams and Frances Tiafoe not before 5.30pm on Court 12.
