Liverpool Tennis Foundation
The Foundation is managed as the charitable arm of Northern Vision – the organisers of the annual Liverpool International
Tournament in Calderstones Park – in association with the LTA, Liverpool City Council and partner tennis clubs in Liverpool.
The aim of the Foundation is to use Tennis to make an active difference into the lives of thousands of young people throughout Liverpool – developing transferable life skills of self esteem, respect for others and teamwork.
In doing so we aim to create a long term and sustainable increase in participation – in schools, clubs, parks and centres – and also, through our schools programme, to identify talented children who can be fast-tracked into performance programmes.The Foundation programmes are divided into 5 core areas:
Promotion – Year Round Schools Programme, Special Events, Liverpool International Tournament Kids Day and Community Link Programmes
Coaching – Mini Tennis and Junior Tennis Sessions at partner clubs, ‘Back to Tennis’ Adult Courses, Junior Holiday Programmes
Playing – Organised Social Tennis and Fun Matchplay Sessions at partner clubs
Competing – Mini Tennis and Junior Tennis Tournaments, Matches and Local Leagues
Learning Through Tennis – Youth Leadership and Coach Education Programme
