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.Screen Shot 2015-05-20 at 10.17.20

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
