This year Appeti Tennis, in association with The Canterbury Campus, is offering more tennis than ever to the local community - free of charge - after receiving funding from The Tennis Foundation and The Kent Sport Leisure and Olympics Service.
The Tennis Foundation has provided funding for a number of initiatives to bring tennis to local schools and local children. This funding will allow us to bring tennis to more schools and children for longer periods of time. Receiving this funding has been really important as it means that we can give children their first experiences of the game and encourage to continue playing.
The funding from The Kent Sport Leisure and Olympics Service is through the Sport Unlimited scheme, an innovative new youth sports programme that targets young people who enjoy sport but are not involved or engaged regularly in the local sports community. This has meant that students from The Canterbury High School have received coaching during lunch times and after school and children from the local community can access a Saturday morning tennis club free of charge.
