Jonathan Marray handed over tennis equipment to Curwen Primary School in Plaistow, east London, on Monday, during the Barclays ATP World Tour Finals.

The equipment was provided by the Lawn Tennis Association and Tennis Foundation, who pledged £200 per ace hit at this year’s Barclays ATP World Tour Finals. A total of 288 aces, including 163 in the singles competition, were struck over eight days at The O2 in London.

Marray, who reached the doubles semi-finals of the prestigious season-ending championships with Frederik Nielsen, said, “This is a fantastic initiative and one I am proud I could give some time to.

“Getting more school kids involved and giving them the opportunity to play is what the pledge is all about. Seeing their smiles this morning helped perk me up from losing last night and reminded me what a great year this has been for British tennis.”

Roger Federer hit a tournament-best 34 aces in five matches. He finished runner-up to Novak Djokovic in Monday’s final.
