HELPING MORE PEOPLE… PLAY MORE TENNIS
We are a UK tennis charity helping more people play tennis by creating inclusive environments for everyone
Our charity supports tennis clubs in the UK by increasing membership numbers, raising participation levels and improving playing facilities, as well as funding and supporting clubs to deliver our I Play 30 sessions.
MAKING A DIFFERENCE
More than 450 tennis venues have already benefited from charity open days provided by Bright Ideas for Tennis, raising in excess of £1million. Funds raised during these days have contributed to providing free community based tennis sessions for those that ordinarily wouldn’t get the opportunity, such as schools outreach programmes, introductory taster sessions, new membership discounts and cardio tennis courses.
I Play 30
Our I Play 30 programme provides free tennis activity sessions designed for adults and children with learning, sensory and physical disabilities. Bright Ideas for Tennis provide training for coaches and volunteers, a budget for specialist equipment and support clubs in delivering sessions to local SEN schools and community groups.
Improving Club Facilities
Bright Ideas for Tennis has helped to fully fund a variety of projects such as practice walls, ball machines, court cleaning and court re-painting at tennis clubs across the UK. We have also contributed to several new court builds, clubhouse refurbishments, floodlight installations and court resurfacing.
