PRESS INVITATION: Join us at our Pre-Davis Cup event and find out all about GoTennis

23 November 2017 | 3pm-10pm | Veeweydestraat 102, Brussels

 

Dear journalist

Did you see David Goffin almost win Nitto ATP Finals on Sunday? What a great preparation for the Davis Cup this week!

Building up to that final, we kindly invite you to our unique urban court for a party with tennis fans gearing up for the epic clash between Belgium and France.

GoTennis is a Brussels based startup that saw that tennis participiation is collapsing (in Belgium -3,5% in only 3 years!) and wanted to do something about it. On top of that, tennis has not gone fully online and as a result does not provide the flexibility and easy solutions that people want. 

So we created GoTennis: the first genuinly online tennis club with courts across Europe.
We have multiple courts across a city and our members can arrange a whole tennis game via www.gotennis.eu in as little as four clicks!

But we are more...so much more...

GoTennis wants to open up tennis, make it easier to play and build a tennis community across mutliple cities. We do this by, for example, making the urban environment our tennis playground, or by using a converted warehouse in Anderlecht as our urban tennis court.

Want to find out more?
Then please join us at our launch event:

Thursday 23 November, 3pm-10pm
Veeweydestraat 102, 1070 Brussels.
