Pershore Tennis Centre hits mental health where it hurts!

The team at Pershore Tennis Centre hosted the local leg of a nationwide charity challenge, Breakpoint 2019, yesterday and have already raised nearly £300 for mental health charities.

Bright Ideas for Tennis

Pershore Tennis Centre, the Herefordshire and Worcestershire LTA’s Club of the year, hosted the nationwide tennis fundraiser run by Danny Sapsford, the ex-Davis Cup player and man behind Bright Ideas for Tennis.

Supported by the LTA and AELTC the event aims to raise awareness of the benefits tennis has on one's mental well-being and to raise funds to expand the our tennis programme, I Play 30, that currently provides free tennis to disability groups, with a particular on-going focus on mental health.

The idea was realised by Robyn Moore who suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder. Robyn took up tennis on the advice of a psychologist when she suffered with flashbacks. Robyn said:

Tennis helped me steer away from the constant battle in my head and, more importantly, I realised that I don’t feel so alone anymore. My idea soon became a reality and Breakpoint 2019 was born.

Hitting off with Tim Henman earlier this week, Breakpoint 2019 continues over 46 venues across the UK, ending up at the All England Club Community Sports Ground on the 30th of June - the day before Wimbledon 2019 commences.Danny Sapsford, Charity Manager, Bright Ideas for Tennis, said:

Tennis has been shown to have significant benefits on people’s mental and physical well-being which is why it is so important that more people get involved in tennis at every age across the country. Pershore Indoor Tennis Centre is doing some fantastic work at all levels from junior programmes, performance coaching, cardio tennis and parents and child classes, which is why we are pleased to be here and appreciate their support.

Fundraising for Breakpoint 2019 continues and Jon Guppy, Junior Chair at the local Club, urges others to donate:

We had a record number attending the improvers’ session with Head Coach Steve and everyone was able to meet Robyn Moore. The Bright Ideas for Tennis team would like to thank Pershore for their continued support of them and together we urge everyone to hit mental health where it hurts!

To donate please go to: https://www.justgiving.com/campaign/breakpoint2019 and tag in #takeheartgivehope.

 

To all our County Volunteers, we thank you!
