    Inclusion & Diversity

    Tennis Ireland is delighted to present our second cycle of ‘She Leads – Young Women Leadership Programme’. ‘She Leads’ will give representatives from each county of Ireland the opportunity to discuss and collaborate on how to grow tennis for young Irish women, empower future leaders in our sport and provide a platform for them to voice their opinions and bring about effective change. Representatives could be nominated by their clubs, potentially junior representatives on committees, junior captains or young committee members (i.e. potential future leaders in clubs).
