Tennis Ireland New 4-Year Strategy

Calling all Tennis Fans

 

Whether you are a beginner, a Club Player, an international, a parent or support our game as a coach, administrator or as a volunteer, we are looking for your help 

Tennis Ireland is building a 4 year strategy that will meet the needs of existing players at all levels in reaching their potential, and building the profile of tennis in Ireland so we can attract others to participate and enjoy our game. The plan will provide a roadmap that will help Clubs, Coaches, Provinces and our Performance Players, whilst allowing us to partner successfully with others supporting the game such as, but not limited to, the Dublin Lawn Tennis Council and the Parks Tennis Organisation.

 How can you get involved?

We have put together a steering team, representative of every aspect of the sport, for the project who have designed a consultation framework that allows people to get involved in several ways:

Firstly, we have scheduled a series of workshops around the country to meet and gather the ideas and aspirations of people who are involved in tennis at all levels, these meetings will be facilitated by Pinta Consulting, will capture the best ideas as to how we can grow and improve the experience of tennis at all levels. The meetings will be two hours in duration and are designed so that we can listen to all the diverse voices of tennis. The schedule and location of these meetings are as follows:
