Our 24hr Tennis Marathon is right around the corner, returning in February 2024. Children from several schools will come together to ensure play continues for 24 hours. All funds raised will help us to continue to expand our I Play 30 programme across the UK, bringing local venues and SEN schools together to provide access to free coaching per week for students.
The Manchester Grammar School (MGS) are leading the way with almost £3k raised of their £5k target – amazing! Bertie from Beachborough School is the lead fundraiser with an incredible £734, closely followed by Ahmed & Jai from MGS.
Remember, if schools reach their £5k target then we will arrange for a Davis Cup or Billie Jean King Cup player to visit their school and deliver a tennis masterclass, along with a Q&A – an incredible opportunity to play with and learn from some of the best of British tennis!
“Our son has been attending your special needs tennis group for about a year. The tennis session each Friday evening is an event he greatly enjoys and looks forward to. He is not as active generally as we would like him to be so this gives him an opportunity to run around and get breathless whilst also aiding his co ordination and fine motor skills. He may never be ready for Wimbledon but the benefits, health wise, are enormous” Parent of an I Play 30 player.
