MK Inclusive Tennis is now a ‘Registered Place to Play’ with the Lawn Tennis Association!
MK Inclusive Tennis began in March 2014 with a mission to provide affordable and accessible tennis for all and to grow tennis participation in Milton Keynes. They now deliver sessions across MK with 5 venues and 13 tennis courts in all areas from Bletchley to Olney and from Shenley Church End to Walnut Tree. They have grown tennis in these areas from nothing to over 200 players a week who now enjoy regular tennis. Their mission was to provide playing opportunities for anyone without the need for a membership fee, which we have succeeded in doing and will continue to do for as long as we continue.
Along with increasing participation, they also deliver tennis playing opportunities to those who find themselves financially or socially disadvantaged. They have run sessions all over MK and now boast a portfolio of partners and funders who work together to benefit local communities through the sport of tennis. They have delivered free tennis to 12 schools in the most deprived areas of Milton Keynes as well as running sessions at low or no cost in Bradville and Downs Barn.
In addition, their disability sessions continue to grow with wheelchair, visually impaired children and adults, deaf children and adults with learning disabilities all enjoying the sport in various venues across Milton Keynes. Their sessions now attract over 70 players enjoying weekly tennis sessions with some of our players now entering National Competitions.
