Seniors Tennis GB Participation Grant 2021
Since 2015, Seniors Tennis GB (STGB) has run an initiative in association with the LTA and a number of County Associations, designed to encourage more adults over 30 years old to play more tennis more often. The aim being to support ideas to encourage adults to take up tennis and keep playing, through allocating grants for the club or facility to help develop tennis programmes.
In 2020, this scheme had been advertised with applications received when sadly COVID-19 kicked in and the 2020 scheme was cancelled.
This year we are looking to support recreational competitions.
The STGB / LTA plan to offer grants of £100 to put towards supporting recreational competition for seniors and supporting the introduction of the new ITF World Tennis Number scheme. These grants will be awarded to the most deserving cases covering:
Running a local Seniors Tennis Competition using the new ITF World Tennis Number
- £100 per competition towards trophies, organiser time, marketing etc,
- You are able to charge entry fees to generate some money
- Results must be submitted using LTA Competition Software such as Results Manager
Schemes must be sustainable – for example showing this is the first of what you hope to be a number of events
Application deadline is Sunday 16th May 2021.
