Tennis For Free co-founder Patrick Hollwey said: “It has never been more important to get communities active again, especially those who have limited access to sport for various reasons. It is not just tennis; it is essential to continue the community spirit that has developed in these recent times, and what better way to do it than by getting everyone together on a tennis court?”
Tennis For Free work in partnership with Bury Live Well Service and the LTA, linking also with wellbeing groups and other local organisations including a new partnership soon to be announced with Give To Local who will help to raise funding for the scheme and to link up businesses and individuals across the locality making TFF truly a scheme run By the Community, For the Community.
