“No man is an island.” The same goes for an organisation like Independent Tennis. We work with some wonderful partners and are very grateful for their terrific support. These are the main ones we wish to thank.
Give It Your Max is a UK charity that pays for tennis coaches to introduce and teach tennis to children aged between five and ten years old in state schools. The organisation has developed a very active and successful primary school programme. Overall, through tennis it gives many children a new and positive perspective on life. For more information about Give It Your Max visit Give It Your Max’s website.
Hertsmere Borough Council look after and promote Meadow Park (their offices are in fact a stone’s throw away). As a forward-thinking organisation, they recognise the broad benefits tennis can bring to the local community. They have been very supportive to us, providing us with access to the courts and with publicity for the initiative. For more information about Meadow Park visit Hertsmere Borough Council’s website.
The Lawn Tennis Association (LTA) recognises Independent Tennis as a community resource and directly help us by promoting the work we do in Hertfordshire. Their website is a great resource. It has lots of very useful information about tennis in schools, public parks and how Mini Tennis works. Visit the LTA website.
Viridian Partnership gave us a lot of helpful advice, as well as designing and building our website for us. As “tennis parents” who have seen what the sport can do for children, the owners are keen to support the Independent Tennis initiative. Find out more about Viridian.
3Tenn is a registered charity whose aim is to develop community tennis across Hertfordshire through schools and the use of public facilities. Find out more about 3Tenn.
