HELPING MORE PEOPLE...
PLAY MORE TENNIS
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.
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.
Bright Ideas will arrange for current and former GB Davis Cup/Fed Cup stars, provided by The Tennis Circus, to visit your club.
Each day consists of a combination of tennis masterclasses and exhibition matches as well as fun events such as a fastest serve competition and a raffle/auction for tennis memorabilia.

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.
