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.

One of the main aims of our tennis charity is to help clubs fundraise. This enables them to provide free participation opportunities for all within their local communities which, in turn, helps them to grow their existing coaching programmes.  We also work with selected venues in order to aid grant applications for bigger capital projects such as providing floodlights, court resurfacing or clubhouse refurbishments. Our I play 30  inclusive tennis programme focuses on providing more opportunities for more people to play tennis, particularly adults and children with learning, sensory and physical disabilities.


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.

I am delighted to be supporting Bright Ideas for Tennis. Inspiring players of all ages and abilities, raising participation levels and improving facilities are fundamental to improving the overall standards within the game and this is exactly what Bright Ideas are doing. I share their passion and commitment towards these goals and I look forward to helping them in the future.
