03 Mar Join us on court for the 2022 Tennis 4Cancer campaign!
Calling all Clubs & Coaches,
You are invited to rally behind a brilliant fundraising campaign called ‘Tennis 4 Cancer’ which is all about having lots of fun whilst raising money for two very important cancer charities! You can get your tennis club involved by organising a range of different activities from coffee mornings to grand slam tournaments. All proceeds go directly to ARC Cancer Support Centres and the National Breast Cancer Research Institute.
Since 2018, local tennis clubs from all over the country have dug deep and raised a staggering €90,000.00 by organising a range of different activities from coffee mornings to grand slam tournaments. You can get your tennis club involved by organising a fundraising event of your choice. This year we want to put an emphasis on FAMILY PLAY – as never before has tennis been so popular with families and we know that so many families in Ireland have been affected by cancer.
Sadly 1 in 2 people in Ireland will develop cancer during their lifetime. In Ireland more than 40,000 new cases of cancer or related tumours are diagnosed each year and this figure is set to rise.
T4C was established after a number of people in the tennis community had been affected by cancer. Over 30 clubs are now involved with the hope of doubling the amount of clubs participating this year.
“Our partnership with Tennis4Cancer is really good fun and we are delighted they’ve chosen to work with us for 2022. We’re thrilled to be able to reach tennis clubs to spread awareness about the impact of a cancer diagnosis and to help raise money to fund our free psycho-social services.” – Jessica Sheehan, Deputy Head of Fundraising, ARC Cancer Support Centres.
“The National Breast Cancer Research Institute is very grateful to the Tennis4Cancer initiative for helping us in our efforts to improve diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer. We can’t thank everybody enough for their enormous generosity and support and we are delighted to be part of this wonderful campaign for 2022.” – Jennifer Skeffington National Breast Cancer Research Ireland.
Tennis4Cancer has the official support & backing of Tennis Ireland & Tennis Coach Ireland.
