Creating accessible & affordable places to enjoy sport is only part of our mission – we also want to proactively engage the local communities around our centres so that they want to be part of what we do and are aware of all the options available to them at their local Will to Win sports centre.
When the 2012 Summer Olympic and Paralympic Games were held in London, Will to Win wanted to share in the excitement – and be part of something amazing! So together with our partners at the Lawn Tennis Association and The Royal Parks, we helped make tennis part of the ‘Have a Go’ programme. Click below to find out more.
Will to Win prides itself on reaching out to all age groups and sections of society, from providing free tennis taster sessions and coaching in local schools to helping facilitate initiatives like SilverFit, a great fitness programme for the over-50s.
Will to Win also provides mini tennis coaching sessions at local community events, including Pitshanger Party in the Park in Ealing and the Chiswick Super Saturday of Sport, an event hosted by Clare Balding and featuring a range of activities designed to get youngsters excited about sport.
Additionally, each Will to Win centre regularly holds free Open Days, and Judy Murray’s ‘Set for Sport’ roadshow also visited our Lammas Park centre, giving Will to Win yet another opportunity to engage with our community.
Community is an important word at Will to Win, whether it’s at the local level or within our centres themselves. Regardless of location, we strive to create warm, friendly environments that are all about inclusivity and where everyone feels welcome. That’s why we are particularly proud to have been named ‘Club of the Year’ by Middlesex LTA in 2011, 2012 & 2013 – ahead of some of the most celebrated private tennis clubs in the country.
