Grants for charitable, voluntary and community groups to support local grassroots projects that are looking to promote tennis in areas of deprivation (including rural) and help those who are disadvantaged or vulnerable.
The Stimulus Fund was set up by the Suffolk Lawn Tennis Association (SLTA) to expand tennis in Suffolk to the widest possible community by providing funding for small schemes aimed at increasing the number of players in both the junior and younger adult age-groups.
SLTA is looking to discover and exploit a wider vein of talent
- By taking tennis further into the community socially and geographically
- By giving the opportunity to play to those who have not had the chance before
Above all, SLTA wants more people to see tennis as a thoroughly enjoyable sport combining exercise with social pleasure.
In this way SLTA aims to build a stronger and more successful base for the future of tennis in Suffolk.
NEW TENNIS FUNDING AVAILABLE
Grants of up to £1,000 are available for charitable, voluntary and community groups to support local grassroots projects that are looking to promote tennis in areas of deprivation (including rural) and help those who are disadvantaged or vulnerable.
It looks to encourage young people up to the age of 30 to enjoy or return to the sport of tennis with the emphasis on increasing membership and making tennis sessions sustainable. Applications will be considered for activity camps that include other sports where tennis is a major part with an experienced tennis coach supporting the sessions.
Any application that involves tennis coaching should only be undertaken by qualified LTA coaches.
