Westside Lawn Tennis Club is one of the premier tennis clubs in Surrey, situated a short distance from Wimbledon Village and Wimbledon Common.
We are conscious that small local charities have difficulty competing with large national charities. Whilst the Cub and its members are involved in activity to support larger charities we make a special effort to ensure that we support good causes closer to home.
Westside Lawn Tennis Club is an integral part of the Community and it is important that we are active in promoting and supporting local causes. This belief is shared not just by the management and staff at the Club but its members too. Much of our fundraising activity is driven by a membership that is passionate about supporting the community.
A few of our members are volunteer carers at Home Start Merton and since 1999 we have given up the facilities at the Club for half a day to stage a tournament in aid of the Charity. The tournament has become a much-loved feature of our annual calendar
“Supporting Home Start has helped us to develop social cohesion at the Club, raise our profile and build relationships with local businesses around fundraising activity.”
