We host and organise a multitude of fundraising events including 24hr marathons, skydives, gala dinners, and football matches. These events help us to raise funds to increase participation, and improve playing facilities within UK tennis clubs and venues. Our most recent project I Play 30, provides free weekly tennis sessions for players with disabilities and we currently operate I Play 30 sessions at 17 venues throughout the UK.
Starting at noon on the 22nd February 2019 we will be once again hosting a 24hr tennis marathon event at the National Tennis Centre, Roehampton. Anna Smith(tbc), and 2016 Wimbledon sensation, Marcus Willis will play continuously for the 24 hours and will be partnered by a selection of Davis Cup and Fed Cup pros throughout the event.
The opposition will be provided by a selection of teams from tennis clubs across the UK, each raising funds for a specific club project.
And for the first time, in 2019, Bright Ideas for Tennis will be incorporating a Corporate element to the 24hr marathon. Teams from Santander and M&G will be sharing a 4hr time slot where they will be first put through their paces in a selection of coaching drills organised by their Davis / Fed Cup ‘captains’, before going head to head in a battle of ’the City’ tournament challenge. Then to finish, a talk/presentations from Richard Farleigh (Dragons Den star, and entrepreneur).
