Investing in youth development
Truro based financial planning company, Worldwide Financial Planning have announced their sponsorship of local junior tennis player Harry Melville.
Harry (aged 14) has represented Cornwall at all junior age groups and has won over 30 tournaments at county and regional level. He recently reached the final of the men’s singles at Truro Tennis Club Championships. He is a member of Truro Tennis Club, is a pupil at Truro School, and is coached by Steve Askey (Heron Tennis Academy in Newquay).
Peter McGahan, Chief Executive of Worldwide Financial Planning said. “Investing in local talent is so important so we are absolutely delighted to sponsor Harry.
He has shown a real commitment to tennis and it shows in his consistently high level performances over the past few years.
Although this is an investment in his tennis pathway, we are creating a programme to coach a rounded young man. We will be assisting Harry with his fitness, conditioning and nutrition via our contacts and elite coaches at the world renowned Bosworth Clinic in Oxford, where he will rub shoulders with many, including world 100m silver medallist Dina Asher-Smith under the guidance of Gordon Bosworth, previous head physio for UK Athletics at Team GB.
We are also very keen to support his early learnings in financial management and our advisers will be working with him in that respect.
Harry is a delightful young man and we look forward to developing a successful partnership with him into the future.”
Harry Melville said:
“I am so grateful to Peter and Worldwide Financial Planning for their sponsorship. It’s an amazing gesture and it will really help towards my tennis and personal development.”
