Stephen Barclay, Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, joins Sport in Mind, Sport England and the LTA for a game of tennis to talk about our work over the last decade in delivering our programmes with the NHS to improve mental health.

Tuesday 4th July- a very exciting day for Sport in Mind and our participants as we had the opportunity to play tennis at the National Tennis Centre at Roehampton. 

We also had a special guest star join us, Stephen Barclay, the secretary of State for Health and Social Care. It was brilliant having Stephen join us – and by that we mean actually getting on court, playing tennis with all our participants from Berkshire Healthcare NHS and chatting to them. It was also fabulous for our team and volunteers to have an opportunity to speak to him about our innovative work over the last decade with the NHS to improve the lives of thousands of people experiencing mental health problems through sport and physical activity and plans for the future.

Thank you to our friends at the Lawn Tennis Association for supporting us both locally and nationally for so many years and providing us with such a fantastic experience for our participants to play on the courts at the National Tennis Centre… on a court next to where current British tennis ace Joe Salisbury was training. What a truly amazing experience for all!

It was also fabulous to see our friend, another British tennis ace, Lucy Shuker on court and have a little catch-up.
