Bright Ideas for Tennis...

Our primary goal is to support tennis clubs in the UK by increasing membership numbers, raising participation levels and improving playing facilities. We aim to provide clubs with a means to generate funds in order to develop their existing coaching programmes, as well as aiding grant applications for bigger capital projects such as installing floodlights, court resurfacing or covering existing courts.

Breakpoint 2019

Our main charity event this year will be Breakpoint 2019, a charity challenge raising funds to provide free tennis activity sessions for people experiencing mental ill health, learning, sensory and physical disabilities.

Robyn Moore will hit 200,000 tennis shots in 30 days. In doing so, she will need to play for 8-10 hours per day for 30 consecutive days. Her shots will be recorded by the Swing™ App (on her Apple watch) and she will average 1 shot every 4 seconds! Robyn, who suffers with PTSD herself, will be visiting 46 venues throughout the UK, including clubs, parks, schools, disability venues, and ATP/WTA Pro tournaments, and each day will be a festival of tennis - open to all to watch, or participate. The final shots will be struck on the prestigious courts of the All England Community ground in Wimbledon on 30th June.

Leaving a Legacy

Funds raised from the day will remain within the club to benefit the members, for example by providing additional coaching sessions, junior initiatives or supervised team practice.

Bright Ideas for Tennis have already started to leave a coaching legacy in clubs across the UK. View the clubs we've visited to see exactly how they have benefited and get inspiration as to how your club could benefit.

Improve Facilities

Bright Ideas for Tennis aims to promote community participation in tennis by offering a grant to eligible clubs in order to fund larger capital projects such as new floodlights or indoor courts.

Charity fundraising to provide grant funding will be through a number of charity events each year, from intimate audiences with top celebrities, to money can't buy tennis experiences. All the funds raised will be dedicated to improving tennis facilities within the UK.
