Dear Ben Prince and the team at WSI
I am writing to thank you for the continued excellent service which your team provide to Thongsbridge Tennis Club. Since engaging the services of WSI, our website and social media presence have vastly improved, notably in both their professional appearance and fresh content. This has been combined with a constant drive to improve the site, and I have been impressed to see how your developers have listened to our needs and vision for growth, and given advice on how we can work towards those goals.
The entire team at WSI is a credit to you and provide an excellent level of service. We were particularly keen to take control of the content of our site, allowing us to update it on a regular basis, and your design and programming skills have allowed us to do this, while maintaining a fantastic layout and professional feel to the site. The recent developments and additions then allowed us to keep the site even fresher with interactive and prominent news and events sections. Kind Regards
