Sponsorship Program

In 2013 board member, Franziska Kaltenegger instigated a Sponsorship Program to support children of all ages to participate and reach their potential in tennis.

“Studies show that sports keep kids engaged and healthy. Without positive outlets, youth are more at risk for harmful behaviour. I see this as a community project, we are asking our members, businesses and the general public who love and believe in sports to become sponsors,” says Franziska who has a background in fundraising and conference management. The program is a flexible one offering four options where contributors can donate from $500 to $15,000 and up.

In spring 2014 Lis and Bruce Welch became the first sponsors with a ‘Friends of the Youth Family’ package dedicating $2,000 to the Roberts Creek School under the Sponsorship Program.

Says Lis Welch: “We have no affiliation with tennis except as couch potatoes watching the grand matches. However as community members we believe in what you are doing for the advancement of youth in sports.”
