The second of the 2012 ATP ACES For Charity grants was presented to Neil Prior, CEO, Canterbury Tennis, on Monday at the Heineken Open. ATP Executive Chairman & President Brad Drewitt was on hand to award the $10,000 grant to Prior in Auckland.

Canterbury Tennis, nominated by the Heineken Open, aims to rebuild its tennis centre at Wilding Park after the devastating earthquake in February 2011 severely damaged all 33 of its outdoor courts. Of the 110 non-profit clubs affiliated to Canterbury Tennis, five suffered extensive damage with nearly all of their courts destroyed, and an additional nine suffered considerable damage.

The organisation aspires to re-open its tennis centre by late 2012.
