Our goal is to help more people play tennis, because we believe the sport can be a force for good across the country. Tennis has the capacity to inspire, energise and empower. Quite simply, it can transform lives. We can do so much with tennis – and there’s a lot to do – but without funding and donations, we can’t do anything.

How we’re funded.
The Tennis Foundation receives funding from a number of bodies, including the Lawn Tennis Association, Sport England, the All England Lawn Tennis Club and UK Sport. We also rely on donations from individuals.
What we spend it on.
There’s no such thing as a typical Tennis Foundation project – the work we do is as diverse as the people we work with. For example, we use tennis to inspire and motivate young people in schools and colleges. We also run sessions for disabled players. We support venues, train coaches, engage communities and transform lives.
The impact we’ve had and our plans for 2016.
Every year we give more people the opportunity to play tennis. For example, last year we supported over 20,000 schools. We kept our network of 53 Community Indoor Tennis Centres open to everyone who wanted to play. And across the country in 2015 we supported tennis session for a range of impairments providing the opportunity for over 6,000 individuals to play tennis more than once a month. Next year, we’ll be building on successes like these with new initiatives such as our School of Tennis.
