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.
In June, Robyn Moore completed a monumental tennis challenge on behalf of Bright Ideas for Tennis.
Her target was to hit 200,000 tennis shots throughout the month. Putting this in to perspective, she had to hit 1 shot every 4 seconds for 8 hours a day, for 30 consecutive days. In doing so, Robyn visited 47 venues across the UK, starting in her home town of Fleet on the 1st June, travelling all the way up to Glasgow and Edinburgh, before finishing at the AELTC Community Sports Ground on the 30th.Donate »
A huge thank you to everyone that took part and made the 24 hr Tennis Marathon a success! A special well done to Marcus Willis and Lucie Ahl for playing continuously, and to all the pros that joined them throughout the 24 hours.
Over 100 club players representing 12 venues from across the UK joint 12 Davis Cup / Fed Cup players at the NTC for another 24 hours of fun, laughter and competition. The players were raising funds for a variety of capital projects at their respective venues ranging from new courts, floodlight funds, and clubhouse refurbishmentsDonate »
