Our “Feeling Good!” tennis scheme offers a weekly 2 hour light-hearted and engaging opportunity for local adults to learn or relearn basic tennis skills in a supportive and inclusive outdoor environment. Over the six months of the project our aim is to provide a setting for the development of positive new social relationships and networks, to encourage participants to develop a taste for and commitment to regular exercise and to build up progressively their tennis skills so that by the end of the scheme people taking part will be able to arrange and join in their own social tennis doubles games.
Grantham Tennis Club & Gym won Lincolnshire Tennis' Community Club of the Year in 2016.
We aim to get anyone and everyone involved in tennis.
Our coaches run sessions in different local schools and have also gone to local events to reach out to the community.
Different groups hire out our facilities to host their activities - we always want more people using the club.
The Great Taste Cafe runs a volunteer programme for people with learning difficulties. They work with local care homes, colleges and support groups to give as many people as possible some experience in working. Every volunteer has a target which they work towards and, in some circumstances, volunteering at the cafe has led to a paid job.
