About our club

We’re the Tennis Foundation, Great Britain’s leading tennis charity.

We believe anybody can play tennis. Anyone from any background and any community. No matter what their age, shape or ability.

We exist to create opportunities. Our aim is to make it possible for all sorts of people to pick up a racket and take up the sport. Even those people who never dreamt tennis was for them. And especially those who don’t normally get the chance to follow their dreams.

Why do we do it? Because tennis is a great sport, yes. But it’s so much more than that. It’s a powerful force in people’s lives that can help them stretch, grow and flourish in so many unexpected ways. It’s not just about what happens on the court. Whatever wider potential someone has inside them, tennis can help bring it out.

Our mission is to open tennis up to anyone and everyone. We take tennis into places it’s never been before, into all kinds of communities and neighbourhoods. Diversity and inclusion aren’t just token words for us. They are at the heart of everything we do.
