Caversham Lawn Tennis Club is very active within the local community, and each year dedicates over £5,000 of its own funds towards tennis in the local community in the form of a schools taster programme, where over 2,000 primary school children get the chance to try tennis at no charge at all.
The club attends local school fairs and community events such as Reading’s Children’s Festival, Reading Water Fest and Reading’s Children’s Play Day, which are all organised by Reading Borough Council. We have set up a mini tennis zone for children and families to try the sport for free.
In 2015 the club worked closely with Reading Borough Council and the Lawn Tennis Association to establish a Satellite Club at local park courts in Christchurch Meadows, with the sole aim of increasing participation in the sport within the local area. As part of this programme, club volunteers and our coaches GDT ran the largest park site Great British Tennis Weekend in the UK, enabling hundreds of children and adults to play tennis for free.
