British Columbia, Canada – We are continually looking for ways to provide kids with opportunities to adopt and enjoy the sport of tennis. Whether it is through an after-school community program or through a club, our goal is to provide kids with opportunities to get started, to share our passion for the game and to encourage them to be active for life. Tennis BC has a number of fundraising and donation programs available that support both community youth and high performance tennis programs in BC.
Living through the pandemic these past 2 years has been extremely challenging for everyone, and we are incredibly thankful for the support from our amazing tennis community in BC. Even through these trying times, we have raised over $1300 through the Vancouver Foundation for our two legacy funds: the Community Youth Tennis Fund and the Edward Siemens Memorial Tennis Fund.
The Community Youth Tennis Fund, which had $620 donated, supports the development of youth tennis at the community level. The Edward Siemens Memorial Tennis Fund, which had $750 donated to it this year, supports one or more high performance junior athletes competing for Team BC.
On behalf of Tennis BC and all the athletes who benefit from these funds, we would like to extend a huge thank you to all the generous donors.
Donations to any of our funds and foundations are tax deductible. With the holiday season upon us, it is the season for giving! It’s not too late to donate this year. Learn more about our funds and foundations here.
