Suffolk Tennis Fund Ltd
Suffolk Tennis Fund can provide interest free loans of up to £10,000 for a period of 10 years. Only registered Suffolk tennis venues are eligible to apply. The aim is to support capital projects.
The Stimulus Fund, managed by Suffolk Community Foundation, was set up by the Suffolk Lawn Tennis Association (SLTA) to expand tennis in Suffolk to the widest possible community by providing funding for small schemes aimed at increasing the number of players in both the junior and younger adult age-groups.
SLTA continues to try to discover and exploit a wider vein of talent by
- taking tennis further into the community socially and geographically
- giving the opportunity to play to those who have not had the chance before
Above all, SLTA wants more people to see tennis as a thoroughly enjoyable sport combining exercise with social pleasure.
In this way SLTA aims to build a stronger and more successful base for the future of tennis in Suffolk.
Grants of up to £1,000 are available for charitable, voluntary and community groups to support local grassroots projects that are looking to promote tennis in areas of deprivation (including rural) and help those who are disadvantaged or vulnerable.
It looks to encourage young people up to the age of 30 to enjoy or return to the sport of tennis with the emphasis on increasing membership and making tennis sessions sustainable.
