Ricoh and tennis
Lawn Tennis Association (LTA)
Ricoh UK began its association with the Lawn Tennis Association (LTA) and British Tennis in 2012. Three of the UK’s most prominent grass court events enable the world’s leading tennis players to prepare for the third slam of the season, Wimbledon. The Aegon Championships, Aegon Classic and Aegon International all display Ricoh branding on their centre courts and regular videos in public catering areas. Hospitality at both The Aegon Championships and Wimbledon provide us with valuable face time with clients and prospects and gives us space to tell our story in a welcoming environment.
Community plays its part too with a portion of our investment going towards developing grass roots tennis, encouraging young and old to get involved, either on a local court or at LTA organised events, such as mini tennis.In 2016, Ricoh and the LTA launched a pioneering sport and business mentoring scheme aimed to level the playing field for sports professionals. Designed to develop the pipeline and parity of women and men in leadership roles in sport, and managed by Women Ahead in partnership with the 30% Club, the programme matches 40 senior managers at Ricoh with leaders at the LTA as they reach the middle of their careers.
