National Vision Impaired Tennis Championships 2017!
The National Visually Impaired Tennis Championships are taking place from Friday 6 – Sunday 8 October at the Loughborough University Tennis Centre. We have moved venues due to the rapid increase in the number of players playing VI tennis as well as some new developments in the tournament including a junior draw.
The players have been competing all year in the regional tournaments with another two due to take place before the Nationals. We are looking for enthusiastic volunteers to help make this year’s tournament a great success! The volunteers are a key part of this tournament’s success & last year helped in many ways including finding players before matches so they were ready to go on, helping players on
We are looking for enthusiastic volunteers to help make this year’s tournament a great success!
The volunteers are a key part of this tournament’s success & last year helped in many ways including finding players before matches so they were ready to go on, helping players on court by gathering balls, assisting B1 players, distributing packed lunches and gathering feedback towards the end of the tournament.
Lunch & a volunteer t-shirt will be provided.
If you are free and would be willing to volunteer again this year please click here to complete the online form. If you are only free for one day that is absolutely fine please complete the form accordingly. If you have any trouble completing this form just let me know. I will be in touch nearer the time to confirm arrangements.
Please feel free to ask any friends or family if they are interested in helping out too. The more helpers we have the smoother the tournament will run.
Junior Visually Impaired Tennis Festival
We are also looking for volunteers for our Junior Visually Impaired Tennis Festival. It is being held on Saturday 23 September at Loughborough University Tennis Centre. We will require volunteers from 10.30am – 4 pm. It’s main aim is to get more blind and partially sighted young people playing tennis. If you are free to help us out please click here to complete the form.
Thank you & if you have any questions regarding the tournament or the festival please let me know.
