Lytham Tennis Club Fundraising18 March 2018
As you know the Tennis Club has just spent over £225,000 in building 2 new courts replacing our existing mini court and re-carpetting the other 4 courts.
We now have some excellent facilities but in order to maintain and increase our membership I believe that we need to do more and other potential projects include an air dome to cover 2 courts during the winter (possibly 4 eventually), some new changing rooms/toilets, a covered seating area for viewing tennis on the mini court and some of the main courts and a general enhancement of the tennis area.
Well it’s nice to dream !!
The Club raises funds from the members during the year from subscriptions and events and also some monies from advertising banners and gradually that will build up so that we can continue to invest in the Club. But that takes time.
I do believe that there are opportunities to raise more funds from outside the Club through improved advertising channels, sponsorship, links with local companies, grants, charitable donations etc. etc..
But in order to access these additional sources of finance we need to have a dedicated, structured group who are willing to devote some time and effort into making it happen.
I propose to try and set up such a group to look at this and if you are interested and feel that you can add something to our efforts then please let me know.
