Partnership ace for Nissan and Tennis Ireland

Must read

Nissan has become the official vehicle partner of Tennis Ireland (TI ).

The car manufacturer will also sponsor the Nissan TI Junior Kids Programme and Nissan TI Junior Kids Tour, which gets underway this month.

Nissan’s support will enable Tennis Ireland to expand its programmes to develop the sport at all levels across Ireland.

The Nissan TI Junior Kids Programme is specifically aimed at attracting younger players under eight, nine and 10 years of age to play tennis, to develop their skills whilst having fun, and to enjoy the experience of playing tournament tennis for the first time at regional and national levels.

The vehicles that Nissan is supplying to Tennis Ireland include the Qashqai e-Power and X-Trail e-Power.

Both models drive in electric mode 100 per cent of the time, and the petrol engine is solely used to charge a battery that powers an electric motor to drive the wheels. This offers a unique solution for drivers who are not quite ready to make the move to a fully electric vehicle.

Tennis Ireland is also being supplied with the fully-electric Nissan Ariya crossover, described by the Japanese automaker as its most technically advanced car to date.

Seamus Morgan, managing director of Nissan Ireland said: “Nissan is delighted to partner with Tennis Ireland and to support its work at grassroots level to attract as many children as possible to play tennis, to learn the game while having fun and to develop their skills through the excellent coaching that Tennis Ireland provides.

“We are especially pleased that the Nissan TI Junior Kids Tour will provide hundreds of children with their first experience of playing tournament tennis in a fun and friendly environment. That experience is invaluable and it is one that young players will always remember, however far they progress in playing competitive tennis.”
