Organizers’ and Partners Testimonies

V2020’s Civil Society Cup event was the flagship Tennis Championship event encouraging integration that enabled all members of the community to congregate to network, bond, encourage wellness, healthy living and healthy competition, bringing in real change among all groups within the community, as it was  designed, prepared and implemented by all within the local community. With genuine local people involvement in all the project process, progress was made and transformation achieved among all stakeholders; this transformation process is inspirational while community groups’ commitment to V2020’s events/projects is ensured in future projects. (Cllr Bernard Stone

The event created a great opportunity for disadvantaged members of the community to meet with mentors, coaches, public bodies such as the Lord Mayor of Manchester, local councilors etc. in order to rub shoulders with them, discuss vital local issues, encouraging civic responsibilities and commitment to local social transformation and citizenship. As partners with V2020 on its social transformation crusade we observed with interest that young people, girls, young women and older adults within the community are so passionate about social sports activities especially tennis playing now because of the direct involvement in the Civil Society Cup organized by V2020 and other social activities within the communities.
