The Tennis Foundation (DAA member), ran a tennis programme of activity with the Lawn Tennis Association during 2014, to promote tennis as a sport for all ages and abilities, and encourage people to maximise their personal potential through the sport.
The Tennis Foundation organised a nationwide ‘Road to Westminster’ digital competition that gave pupils the opportunity to make a video talking about, and celebrating, the tennis they play in their school.
The competition built on British tennis’ Schools Tennis programme, which aims to increase and improve tennis participation in schools, remove barriers by training teachers to deliver a fun, quality tennis experience in confined spaces, and create links to enable young people to continue playing in the community.
The winning ten schools won the chance, on 18th June 2014, to play tennis right under Big Ben and meet the Prime Minister David Cameron in Westminster.
Since April 2009, the Schools Tennis Programme has supported over 18,000 schools with free teacher training, resources and equipment.
