Philpott Children’s Tennis Fund
We encourage the community to support the Doug Philpott Inner-City Children’s Tennis Fund. So far this year we have raised $725 towards our goal of $1000 for this worthwhile cause. You can do this by purchasing a donation in our on-line store. You will receive a charitable receipt at the end of the year from the Fund.
In addition the club is donating all Ladder proceeds which so far this year have totaled $2015.
Since 1991, the Philpott Children’s Tennis Fund has helped introduce Toronto’s inner-city children to tennis. Founded out of a desire to honour the memory of Doug Philpott – one of the great folk heroes of Canadian tennis – the Fund provides free lessons, from qualified coaches and instructors, to kids throughout Toronto’s diverse neighbourhoods. Here, coaches teach not only the basics of the game, but also help participants learn valuable life lessons about discipline, cooperation and self-confidence.
