We are extremely proud of the work which, with the help of International Clubs, is being done around the world to enhance the lives of so many young people through tennis - a sport which so many of us love. I would like to thank all those who have made this work possible: the generosity of those attending The Tennis Ball and our partnership with Give it Your Max, private donors and sponsors . I would also like to thank most sincerely the many volunteers both overseas and in the UK for their generosity and efforts on our behalf.
Barry Weatherill CBE, IC Philanthropy Chairman
“There is so much that can be done for impoverished children and from my lifelong background in tennis, I am sure that teaching them tennis with the advantages of learning through the game, about the joys and disappointments of winning and losing, sticking to the rules and self discipline, are rules for life that can help everyone. I look forward to my involvement and I wish all those who are taking part every success, whether as volunteers, coaches or the young people themselves.”
