A course of intense Tennis training for an International event representing Great Britain.

About the project

Hi there! My name is George and I am 21 years old. I am trying to raise funds in order to train abroad at a well recognised, extremely successful tennis Academy in Croatia. This particular tennis club has produced players such as Ivan Ljubicic, who was ranked third in the world. After raising sufficient funds I am looking to play at the Club for a crash course of tennis training starting at the beginning of August.

This is due to being asked to represent Great Britain at the Gallipoli Games in Turkey, Istanbul to celebrate World Peace. This event includes various sports and will take place late September for a week. Countries competing include New Zealand, Australia and Germany who are all attending to take back Medals for their respective nations.

After playing at a professional level I have been able to see what standard must be achieved in order to win this tournament. It is therefore important for me to train at the best possible facility so that I am well prepared to reach my goal and bring back a podium spot for team GB. 

I am a semi-professional tennis player that has already won at a professional level. I intend to make a big impact in Turkey to further not only my personal career but also Great Britain's successful tennis bid. 

 

Thank you in advance for your support.
