Ulster Tennis Cross Party MLA Discussion- Stormont

 

An Ulster Tennis Cross Party MLA Discussion took place at Stormont on Tuesday 8th January 2013 to give MLA's the opportunity to engage and discuss the Ulster Branch Tennis Ireland (UBTI) Development strategy. George Lucas (Ulster Tennis Chairman) and Lauren Smythe (Ulster Tennis) gave a presentation explaining key strategic objectives and current progress agreed with Sport Northern Ireland for the next 4 years. A general discussion aimed at gaining all party support for tennis development was very encouraging and positive.
