Collector Bank Arena – new partnership between Good to Great Tennis Academy and Collector Bank

Collector Bank has entered into a partnership with Good to Great Tennis Academy which runs a leading tennis academy with tennis and padel facilities in Danderyd, Stockholm. The aim of the organization is to develop and support the tennis professionals of tomorrow and develop padel players. The partnership includes support of the organization as well as the naming rights to the arena, which will be called Collector Bank Arena. Through the partnership Collector Bank also aims to open up new business opportunities and increase brand recognition.

Good to Great was founded in 2011 by the former tennis professionals Magnus Norman, Nicklas Kulti and Mikael Tillström, and the arena was inaugurated in the spring of 2018. The focus of the organization is to develop tennis players, going from “Good to Great”, and to prepare youths for life on and off the court. The arena is one of the leading facilities in the world for both juniors, professionals and recreational players to develop and enjoy their tennis and padel games. Good to Great provides the best conditions to realize this vision. The arena and program include tennis and padel practice, mental health education, physiotherapy and sports injury treatment as well as important functions such as nutrition education and schooling for youths. The arena is also accessible for recreational players who can practice alongside both current and future sports professionals.

Collector Bank, which has become a sponsor to the organization and the arena, has during the recent years emphasized its focus on financing solutions, primarily targeting small and medium-sized companies in the Nordics. Collector Bank’s purpose is to bridge the current financing gap between smaller players and large traditional banks. With helping customers to realize their visions as a driving force, Collector Bank has an important role to play for small and medium-sized companies that want to take their businesses to the next level, and in the long run contribute to economic growth and support a sustainable and well-functioning financial ecosystem.

Focus on supporting companies and individuals to reach the next level, going from “Good to Great”, is an important common denominator for Collector Bank and Good to Great. Focus on health and wellbeing are other important aspects. The partnership hence offers a good strategic fit for both parties.

– We are extremely impressed by the work of the Good to Great team. With energy and great commitment, they run training programs and a world class arena which open up opportunities for young tennis professionals. Just like Collector helps companies to reach the next level, Good to Great supports young talents to develop to reach their full potential. As a partner we are proud to be able to support the academy and we are looking forward to working with the Good to Great team. We also see attractive business opportunities and potential to increase our brand recognition, says Martin Nossman, CEO of Collector Bank.

– We always strive towards creating opportunities for many youths and a fantastic experience for our visitors. We are proud and glad to be able to create opportunities for youths together with Collector Bank.
We have a vision of being one of the world’s best sports facilities, says Nicklas Kulti, Partner at Good to Great.
