We are a small community-based tennis club in Babbacombe, Torquay, run entirely by volunteers. The Club was started in 2002 to bring affordable tennis to young people who could not afford to go to a traditional tennis club. One of the first projects we undertook was to build a clubhouse. But with a main room of just 10 feet by 7 feet, plus a small office, we desperately need to extend it and make it fit for purpose. By ingenious use of a couple of adjoining but obsolete storage areas, we plan to increase the inside space four-fold while barely increasing the footprint of the building. We have had quotations for building costs around £20,000 and would like to allow a further £5,000 for fixtures, fittings and decoration. We have embarked on a fund-raising year but we would also like to try and attract some external funding from yourselves. The main purpose of the clubhouse extension is to be able to offer an indoor meeting place for the young members, somewhere for parents to sit
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Getting young people active and laying the foundations for a life of sport and exercise is one of the most important issues of our time. We attract hundreds of youngsters into the world of tennis and we're all volunteers. But we all need a little help from our friends...
