The name Peugeot is inextricably linked with tennis and our commitment to the sport includes a long connection with the French Open at Roland Garros, and associations with British Tennis (LTA) and ATP.

Throughout 2018 Strictly Come Dancing supremo Anton du Beke and Countryfile presenter Helen Skleton have been put through their paces by Judy and Jamie Murray with a series of demanding tennis training drills.
Working with their teenage tennis talents, Reece Farrow and Sophia Underwood, they honed their playing skills through competitive drills which covered serving, volleying, speed, footwork and power.
