- WHO ARE WE?
At Net 360 CIC, we take pride in our mission to promote sport at both the grassroots and elite levels. We have been at the heart of our local community for many years, providing affordable and accessible sporting programs to enthusiasts of all ages and skill levels. Our commitment to tennis development goes beyond the sport; it’s about nurturing individuals, instilling discipline, and fostering a sense of community.
Our work within the community has been highlighted by National Governing Bodies and used as a case study that showcases a diverse programme and an example of good working practice.
Our work in partnership with local clubs was shortlisted for the “Community Sport and Recreation Awards 2023” in Twickenham.
We believe that every individual deserves a healthy and stable mental, physical and social life and future.
We are currently seeking aid from individuals and groups who share our passion for community and our vision to create opportunities for aspiring, talented junior players.
Your support will enable us to extend our reach to underprivileged communities, making tennis accessible to those who might not otherwise have the opportunity to experience this wonderful sport.
For instance, we are bringing a new and exciting racquet sport from Switzerland to the UK. We’d love to give that project a boost, because it has great potential to provide kids who have little resources a fun, educational and covid-friendly (perfect for schools), multi-player or solo game that’s highly flexible. Sponsoring this project would be of immense benefit to our community- we could then duplicate this around the UK in the future. We also currently run other programmes such as deaf tennis, walking tennis, multi-racket sports club alongside many school clubs and family sessions.
Your support will make a substantial impact in the following key areas:
Funding Developing Programs: Your support will help us to broaden our program within the community and reach people that need it most, giving more people the opportunity to nurture their health and well-being. We currently work with schools to provide lessons to children who may not otherwise have gotten involved in tennis or other multi-sports in general. We are currently working with Age UK to make programs more accessible to individuals of all ages and would love the support to continue to extend our reach in doing so. NET 360 also offers deaf tennis sessions and walking tennis to combat the potential isolation of certain demographics of people, who may unfortunately struggle to find inclusive, accessible avenues into sport.
Community Enrichment: Here at NET 360, we also like to support the younger members in our community in becoming young leaders. Our goal is to educate them in wellbeing, give them key skills that will help them to develop as individuals and be able to give them work experience. These opportunities also teach them crucial life skills such as how to manage their money and educate them in becoming future sports people. We’d like to discuss the possibility of other ways to sponsor our work in the community. Your support will enable us to develop our reach in underprivileged communities, as well as diversify our current community making tennis accessible to those who might not otherwise have the opportunity to experience this wonderful sport.
We would love to have the opportunity to host cultural exchanges and educational trips for both adults and children, and with your contribution we could make this a reality, especially for individuals who don’t have the opportunity to travel otherwise.
Upcoming Projects That Require Financial Support:
Youth Sports Trust Exhibition:
We are committed to the development of our team and our ability to enhance experiences for all, and so we are excited to announce our participation in the upcoming Youth Sports Trust Exhibition in Nottingham, where we are fortunate to have the opportunity to showcase our innovative approach to physical education: Street Racket and other innovative sports that transform traditional school lessons into dynamic sporting experiences. This experience will amplify the affect we have on our community’s self-development and physical, mental and social wellbeing, but also requires financial resources to cover the costs associated with taking part in the event, including exhibition fees, travel expenses, and promotional materials. Your support will play a massive role in our efforts to revolutionise physical education in the UK and empower young learners through sports.
Additionally, at NET 360 we're raising funds to acquire a branded van that will aid our business in multiple ways. This van will enable us to conduct school visits and community sessions in a more efficient manner. With a branded presence, we can effectively engage with schools and communities, promoting the benefits of sports participation and delivering impactful sessions. We value the power of sport in uniting people and promoting active lifestyles; with the van we would have the ability to increase the accessibility of our programmes throughout the community, and extend the services we provide to a larger area.
The transportation of equipment and resources to different schools, clubs, parks and other facilities would be significantly easier, facilitating engaging sessions that inspire involvement in sport.
NET 360's brand visibility would improve too- the branded van would serve as a mobile billboard, raising awareness about our business and the services we offer, as well as how people can learn more about us through avenues such as social media. It will act as a powerful marketing tool, reaching potential interested parties across the region. From transporting equipment to setting up for events, having a dedicated van will streamline our operations and allow us to focus on delivering high-quality sports services.
Your contribution will have a huge impact on the success of our sports programs and help us reach more individuals with our initiatives. By supporting our crowdfunding campaign, you're investing in the health, well-being and development of people in the North East.
Together, the Youth Sports Trust Exhibition and having a company van would help us to achieve all our goals in crowdfunding.
As a valued supporter, you will enjoy several benefits, including prominent recognition in our community, branding opportunities, and a chance to be a part of our success story.
If you are representing a larger organisation or local business that values supporting local enterprises and are considering a substantial contribution to our crowdfunding campaign, we we would be thrilled to discuss potential promotional opportunities with you. In exchange for your generous support, we're prepared to offer tailored promotion and advertisement packages that can amplify your brand's visibility across our platforms and events.
We understand that every supporter has unique needs and expectations. We are open to discussing tailored sponsorship packages that best suit your philanthropic goals. For example, there are other ways in which you could support NET 360 such as providing our players with accommodation or meals when they travel for tournaments. We would greatly appreciate any support towards our sporting community in any way.
We invite you to learn more about NET 360 CIC and discuss how your partnership can make a significant impact on our tennis community.
Thank you for considering the opportunity to contribute to NET 360 CIC. We eagerly anticipate the possibility of working together to make our vision a reality.
