Through our Community Club, our aim is to provide as many children as possible aged 6-8 years old in Hammersmith and Fulham the opportunity to play tennis in a fun and safe environment, and to provide an affordable and accessible pathway to encourage children to continue playing. As part of our programme children receive 6 weeks of free tennis lessons (and an invitation to a Festival at The Queen’s Club), before being directed onto affordable follow-on sessions locally with providers the QCF has partnered with.
QCF are delighted that we have expanded our reach and impact externally to Bishop’s Park Tennis Centre with Kate Maurici as the new Head Coach of our QCF Community Club.
Sessions at Bishop’s Park take place on a Monday evening 4:00pm-6:00pm, and are open for children in school years 2 and 3 (aged 6-8).
