Wimbledon Debenture Holders (https://www.wimbledondebentureholders.com/
) are proud to announce that they’ve given away thousands of pounds to Tennis for Free.
The dedicated marketplace for the purchase and selling of Wimbledon 2016 tickets have donated almost £4,000 to the community sports charity.
Philippa Winton, Director, said: "We’re extremely passionate about tennis and take giving back seriously. We strongly believe that everyone in the UK should have the opportunity to play and be a part of such a fascinating sport and we’ll continue to support the charity’s efforts wholeheartedly.”
Tennis for Free works in partnership with local authorities, schools and tennis clubs throughout the UK, providing free access to community tennis courts, free coach led group tennis sessions and free usage of equipment enabling those especially from less privileged backgrounds the opportunity to take up tennis in their local park.
A proportion of each transaction on the website during the 2015 season was donated to the charity, making a grand total of £3,600.
Patrick Hollwey, Trustee at Tennis for Free, added: "We strive to address the barriers for participation in tennis and to bring the benefits of playing the sport to as many young people and families as possible. We are incredibly grateful for the fantastic support from Wimbledon Debenture Holders and the money raised will go a long way in helping us establish new tennis communities in parks across the country.”
