Last year the Group was contacted by Tony Evans a volunteer organiser for Save the Children. Tony was heavily involved in promoting the Save the Children tennis tournaments where clubs around the UK arranged competitions and tennis events to raise vital funds for the charity. His request was very straightforward, would clubs in the Liverpool and District Group be interested in taking part?
The competitions could be as large or small as the clubs wished with even small amounts of money being vital to help change lives. Tony went on to explain that these events were also very useful in getting good publicity for participating clubs as the press and general public responded well to charity events.
It seemed to be a very good idea. As far as we are aware the Group has never supported a charitable cause so after a brief discussion it was decided to make Save the Children the official Liverpool and District Tennis Group charity for 2014.
Clubs wishing to get involved should visit the Host a Tournament webpage where they can register and get resources to help organise and promote the event. Hopefully clubs will be able to find time to help.
Many thanks and good luck to all clubs who support this worthy cause.
