Catella Arena will be one of the world’s leading tennis facilities, where recreational players will be able to train alongside current and future tennis stars.
“Since we opened the Good to Great Tennis Academy at the beginning of 2011 we have worked hard to bring Swedish tennis back to world leadership. The Catella Arena will give us a facility that provides the best environment for being able to realise this vision, with tennis training, physio and sports injury treatments, as well as important provisions such as nutrition and schooling,” says Nicklas Kulti, one of the founders of Good to Great.
The Catella Arena, which is expected to be ready for inauguration February 2018, will be a public facility with seven indoor tennis courts, seven outdoor tennis courts, three indoor paddle tennis courts, three outdoor paddle tennis courts, an ultra-modern gym with a sports injury treatment room, a restaurant, schooling facilities and 18 rooms for overnight accommodation. As a way of giving back to the ATP and WTA tour, Good to Great Tennis Academy and Catella Arena will welcome ATP/WTA tier 1 members and their coaches to use the facilities for training.
“We are extremely pleased that the municipality of Danderyd will have a public world-class facility where our local residents will be able to play tennis and train alongside the current generation and the next generation of top tennis players,” says Olle Reichenberg, chairman of the Danderyd municipal council.
“Good to Great makes an important contribution to young tennis talent and to raising the profile of Swedish tennis internationally. Catella has been a proud sponsor of tennis for more than 15 years, and has been a main sponsor of Good to Great since 2015. With the Catella Arena we are taking the next step in our long-term commitment to Swedish tennis. In addition to making it possible for young talent to reach their full potential, our commitment to tennis creates new business opportunities for us and strengthens Catella’s brand,” says Knut Pedersen, President and CEO Catella.
“We welcome the Good to Great Tennis Academy to Danderyd, where there is great interest in tennis among juniors and seniors, both competitive players and recreational players. It is exciting that the municipality of Danderyd will have a venue on the tennis map of the world, where we can combine tennis at all levels, both professional and recreational. Collaboration between all stakeholders will allow us to serve more tennis players,” say Sten Alfredsson, chairman of the Danderyd Tennis Club, Micaela Hjelm, head of the Djursholm Tennis Club, and Anders Lindgren, head of Enebyberg Tennis Sports Club.
