HS2 COMMUNITY GRANT AWARD FOR WATER ORTON & DISTRICT TENNIS CLUB
As we look forward to our 10th Anniversary, since our formation in 2010, what better way to celebrate than receiving this £43,000 grant.
The funding from HS2 Ltd.’s Community and Environment Fund (CEF) will help our Inclusive Community Sports Club to offer even more opportunities for the local area.
The grant will fund much needed facility improvements, which will allow us to continue with our voluntary coaching work with several local schools. Each week we have two inclusive schools visiting our club, bringing children who have additional needs.
From May through until October, each school term we support 45 young people every week to play a sport we all enjoy. This will be our sixth year of offering this special volunteering work. We are proud to be one of the few clubs in the county that offers this opportunity.
Our court surface was in desperate need of a total resurface and had become quite dangerous, especially for wheelchair users. The funding from the HS2 Community and Environment Fund,, administered by Groundwork UK will now rectify this problem and at the same time improve the drainage giving us a much safer playing area.
As a community club we pride ourselves on these special achievements and we can now focus on developing them further. We would also like to thank Water Orton Parish Council for their support. Their recent restructure has helped us obtain a new 20 year lease and their help has really been appreciated. Special thanks also to our many members and families from the village and the support we get from our near neighbours bordering our community club. Thank you all for your continued support.
The club season runs from 1st April to 31st March each year.
Please note only members can you use courts at our facility. If you are not a member and choose to still book a court online you will not be able to access the facility as access is only provided to members.
