Ely Victoria's 'Mark Goodman' talks of his Olympic experience

posted 13 Aug 2012, 03:46 by James Wilson   [ updated 20 Aug 2012, 05:28 by Ely Badminton ]

Mark Goodman, owner of Top Spin Tennis, was one of a team of racket stringers based at Wimbledon for the Olympic Games.

In less than two weeks, the 52-year-old, who has worked at Wimbledon tournaments, had strung 600 rackets - 150 of which were on one day.

Mr Goodman, who lives in Ely and owns the shops with his wife Karen, said: “The atmosphere was brilliant. I was there for one and a half weeks before it started and saw them transforming Wimbledon from the Wimbledon set up to an Olympic event, changing the green backdrop to purple. They had a huge army of people.

“It is a very different atmosphere to Wimbledon - there are a lot more families and the players use the outside courts to practice on so people can get closer to the top players than they do at Wimbledon.”

Mr Goodman, who also owns shops in Cambridge and Huntingdon, was part of a team made up of racket stringers from America, Australia, France, Spain and Japan.

He strung rackets for players including the world number two seed Djokovic, Switzerland’s Stanislas Wawrinka, who Great Britain’s Andy Murray beat in the first round, and Belgium’s David Goffin.

“There’s a bit of rivalry between the stringers,” said Mr Goodman. “We joke to each other that my racket is beating your racket.

“What’s worse is when the players have had a duff shot and they look at their rackets and you think they are looking at your stringing.

“All the players are very pleasant and say ‘thank you’ and appreciate the service. It’s been a brilliant experience.”

£3.50 Adults / £2.50 Juniors. No membership or commitment required, simply pay as you play.

8pm - 10pm+ ...................Obviously social drinks up the bar after!

So far we have reserved 3 courts but this is usually extended to 4 when attendance increases.

Let us know if you intend to come along by responding to this email.

PLEASE NOTE: Summer Club will be closed for 3 weeks (5th, 12th &19th June). This is for the installation of our new sprung floor.

During the month of June The Paradise Centre, Ely is hoping to fit a new sprung floor in the Main sports hall. This will mean a 3 week shut down of the main hall and a Cost of around £66,000.
This will obviously affect our Summer Club activity but I'm sure you will all agree its is for the greater good.
