Lets Get More Kids Playing Tennis

Not quite
Unfortunately this project was not successful.

We would like to deliver further tennis opportunities to more children in the local community, many of whom live in deprived areas.

Glenrothes Tennis Club was formed in January 2012 to provide tennis opportunities to the local community. 

We are now based at the four floodlit courts of a local high school, which while proving very expensive, at least allows us to provide coaching for all ages and abilities, social play, and the opportunity to enter tournaments.  

What we want to achieve

Recently we have seen a decline in the number of children taking up tennis and as a result, this year we want to encourage more children to become active by playing tennis. 

Our aim is provide fun activities and classes that will improve the fitness of the children but also develop skills such as team-working and hand-eye coordination.

How the money will help

The money would allow us to host open-days to promote the club to local children. In addition, we would be able to provide cheaper children's coaching classes as the money would allow the shortfall in the hire coaches and premises to be covered. 

Got an idea like this?

Our crowd has raised over £70 million for bright ideas and good causes.
