Most young players develop their passion for the game on public tennis courts in the community learning the game in a fun, social setting. This fund supports the development of youth tennis at the community and neighborhood level providing youth opportunities to participate in and enjoy tennis programs. Tennis BC has programs that donate rackets, balls and learn to play equipment to help keep kids healthy, active, and playing for life.
This is a bursary that is presented annually by Tennis BC to assist high performance junior athletes with access to program development opportunities within the Team BC Program. The bursary is awarded to one or more individuals who have participated in programs such as the Tennis BC high performance programs and have been selected or could be selected to represent BC as part of the Team BC Program.
