5 On It Foundation ran their final Smash It tennis coaching session yesterday having seen over 80 budding tennis stars come through the programme. We succeeded in giving young people a chance to pick up a racket and have a go at playing tennis which resulted in participants wanting to continue their new found love for such a fantastic sport.
We are extremely grateful to John Baldwin, our patron, for making a generous donation that made our Smash It dream come true which gave children and teenagers an opportunity to get on court. We also thank https://www.mkcommunityfoundation.co.uk and the People’s Postcode Lottery/Magic Little Grants for funding this exciting project and have been instrumental in making it happen. A big shout out too to brilliant coaches Nick and Tom at https://www.facebook.com/PremEdMK/, they were amazing!
Last but not least, a huge thank you to all our participants and parents who supported the project and gave us such positive feedback, saying our coaches were brilliant and the project was super well organised. Everyone confirmed they would love us to continue the initiative when funding allows.
We are currently in the process of organising other sporting events, please check back on our website soon for more details!
