The Dan Maskell Tennis Trust

Dan Maskell Tennis Trust is a tennis charity raising funds for people with disabilities who play tennis.  It was formed in 1997 and named after the late Dan Maskell “The Voice of Wimbledon” who was passionate about rehabilitation through sport.

Tennis is great fun for all, whether playing socially with friends or at an elite level. It truly is a sport that can be enjoyed regardless of age or ability. What is exciting and of special interest to the Trust, is that tennis is also highly accessible to disabled people.

They specialise in supporting disabled people and disability tennis programmes. Over the years, they have helped hundreds of individuals, clubs and groups to access and provide tennis for disabled people with the purchase of wheelchairs, tennis equipment and grants for coaching.

Group, club or project applications: If you are starting a disability group, a club programme or a project or need help for an existing project or programme.  Examples of items that will be considered under this scheme are help towards court hire, (e.g. for indoor provision) coaching fees, equipment (if not applying for a kit bag). All programmes and projects should aim towards self-financing and sustainability. Whether individual or group - items considered as luxury items such as electrical equipment e.g. videos, clothing or individual transport costs will not be considered. Please give as much information as possible and specify what costs are associated with each item.

Maximum grant per application is £1,500 for a group, club or project and £500 for an individual. In all cases, the Dan Maskell Tennis Trust will consider each application on merit. If alternative funding opportunities exist, The Trust will either suggest these or explore them on your behalf. Please give as much information as possible about your tennis activities.
