Updates on initiatives – September 2021:
1. Rackets Cubed programmes have re-started and are seeing a lot of interest. The Roehampton area remains our ‘heart’ and we hope to launch five to eight programmes over the coming weeks.
Confirmed hosts are Roehampton Club, LTA/ NTC, Roehampton University and hopefully, Ibstock School Schools taking part are Sacred Heart, Heathmere, Alton, Grannard and East Sheen primary while we are in discussions with several new sites in Wandsworth and Merton.
2. Roehampton / Queenstown Road Community Box programmes
- Hubs in Roehampton and at Griffin Primary School (Queenstown Road) are seeing an increase in need and are expanding
- Roehampton Hub is now located at 166 Roehampton Lane and has a local manager running it.
3. Roehampton Community Week programme was a huge success with over 50 groups involved and 40 projects. We raised £100k in total – £60k cash, and £40k in contribution in kind. There was significant engagement (and funding support) with important local partners – Wandsworth Council, Roehampton University, Roehampton Club, AELTC, Ibstock Place School, Parish Trust and we are investing heavily into developing the community capacity and cohesion in the Roehampton area. Work is going on to encourage partnership working between community groups to maximise impact.
4. In- School Delivery programme took place throughout the summer term at ten schools and it was our schools the LTA / NTC used as part of the BBC / Sky media events post Emma Raducanu success.
