Dan Maskell Tennis Trust has received the fantastic news that the Wimbledon Foundation is making a further donation of £16,000 as part of their continued support for charities such as DMTT.
We are excited to launch our new podcast series, in which we will share with you some intriguing stories behind disability tennis. Our opening episode is hosted by our President Elaine Paige OBE and not only explains a bit more about what the Trust does, but also remembers the great Dan Maskell and his role in developing disability tennis.
Having had to cancel our annual Celebrity Golf Challenge for the second consecutive year, we wanted to keep in touch with our golf supporters so we are offering a virtual Golf Tournament for you to play at a course of your choice during a two-week period in September – the 11th to the 25th.
The LTA announces a partnership with The National Lottery to become the Official Partner of the LTA’s Wheelchair World-Class Programme for the next two years. The partnership will provide crucial support to the current elite level of the sport as they prepare for Tokyo 2020 and also look to encourage more juniors, men, women and quads to pick up a racket for the first time, feeding into one of the most successful disability sport programmes in the UK.
Combining the milestones of 30 years since he passed away and the 100th Anniversary of the Centre Court at Wimbledon, for which Dan is most remembered, we have created an opportunity for those who have memories of him or those that have benefitted from the Trust, to leave their tributes and messages.
