Indigenous Tennis & Learning
ICP is supporting a new programme, the Murlpirrmarra Connection. A not-for-profit organisation that aims to improve the wellbeing of Aboriginal youth (aged 12-18) in the remote regions of Western Australia by facilitating their educational engagement and providing tailored community sport, recreation, and health programmes. The project has been built over a 12 year period of sustained engagement with the Martu people and is community driven. Many students are ‘at risk’, particularly in school holidays. A range of community based school holiday programmes are run to address boredom and reduce juvenile delinquency and substance abuse. The programme works with the Martu people to empower young people to fulfil their potential, find sustainable employment and contribute constructively to the Wiluna community and wider society.

Final report from KRRP

The Ken Rosewall Regional Project (KRRP) was launched in 2016 to provide tennis coaching in schools and communities in regional, rural and often remote areas of Australia that would otherwise find it difficult to provide free lessons to their students or to attract tennis coaches on a regular basis.

Latest testimonials from the KRRP

KTF programs continue to be conducted in many regional areas around Australia, giving many more underprivileged children the opportunity to “pick up a racquet and have a hit” for the first time in their lives, thanks to the Ken Rosewall Regional Project (KRRP).  This Feedback says it all……….
