Dan Maskell Tennis Trust
Serving Tennis to Disabled People

Coachathon Fundraising Initiative



A fundraising initiative to encourage club members and non-members to participate in coaching sessions to promote the benefits of coaching and support the Dan Maskell Tennis Trust (DMTT), a charity which promotes and supports tennis for disabled people.


Clubs are invited to promote ‘Dan Maskell Coachathons’, in which courts will be made available by clubs or tennis facilities for coaches to provide coaching sessions on a designated day or days.

Modus Operandi

As the name suggests, a Coachathon is a marathon of coaching and suggestions will be provided in the guidance/criteria notes. DMTT will provide Clubs or Tennis Facilities with promotional material to advertise the days. Clubs or tennis facilities in turn will allocate one or two courts for the sessions, which will be taken by club coaching staff.

Each session will involve either individuals or groups who will receive one hour’s group coaching and will cost £20 per individual or £5 per player in a group. The income from the coaching may be divided between the coach and DMTT in a ratio to be agreed.

Dan Maskell Coachathon Days could be incorporated into existing coaching schemes.

Each participating club should appoint an individual or small group to oversee the operation of the scheme.

Each club will be expected to generate a minimum of £250 per day for DMTT.


Clubs – good publicity and the scheme should help to find new members.

Coaches – good PR and hopefully find new clients 

Tennis – should enhance its image as a sport sympathetic to the needs of the disabled.

Disability Tennis – Additional resources and encouragement for more disabled individuals to play tennis.
