Edgbaston Priory Club has further enhanced its outstanding tennis facilities with the construction of a brand new tennis practice wall, courtesy of a £10k grant from Metro Real Estate.

The ‘Pro’ REBO wall is a high quality, freestanding practice wall with a unique adjustable face which enables tennis players to develop their skills, whatever their age or ability.

Many of the world’s top athletes have talked about how they trained against practice walls to improve their skills including Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer, Pete Sampras, Bjorn Borg, Venus Williams and Martina Navratilova.

Robert Bray, Chief Executive of Edgbaston Priory Club, says:

“We are extremely grateful to Metro Real Estate for their generous grant which has enabled us to purchase this Rebo wall – the latest innovation in tennis practice walls. This brand-new facility will allow members of all ages and abilities to develop their skills and enable coaches to create drills to engage aspiring and improving players.”

A Tennis Practice Wall, often described as the perfect partner because it makes no mistakes, allows players and coaches to use it to:

– Warm up before matches
– Work on specific aspects of stroke technique
– Enable injured players to return from injury
– Stay fit with skills and drills session
– Engage and motivate younger players as there’s no running after unreturned balls!

Metro Real Estate is a responsible investor and plays a role in supporting local and national charitable causes.

Director Ray Seymour, commented on the support:

“We were delighted to enable the Club to build the Tennis Wall. We’re keen supporters of the Club and its aim to encourage more and more people to take up racket sport. The benefits of using a practice wall to improve both skills and stamina, whether you are an absolute beginner, an aspiring Murray, or a social stalwart are clear to see and we were more than happy to lend our support.”
