About The Dan Maskell Tennis Trust
Dan Maskell Tennis Trust is a tennis charity raising funds for people with disabilities who play tennis.
Formed in 1997 and named after the late Dan Maskell "The Voice of Wimbledon" who was passionate about rehabilitation through sport.
Tennis is great fun for all, whether playing socially with friends or at an elite level. It truly is a sport that can be enjoyed regardless of age or ability. What is exciting and of special interest to us, is that tennis is also highly accessible to disabled people.
The Dan Maskell Tennis Trust specialise in supporting disabled people and disability tennis programmes. Over the years, we have helped hundreds of individuals, clubs and groups to access and provide tennis for disabled people. We do this by:
Specialist wheelchairs for individuals, clubs, special schools and centres running disability programmes
Equipment/coaching kit-bags for coaches, clubs, special schools, disability groups and associations
Grants for disability groups, associations, programmes and individuals with a disability with financial aid towards certain tennis expenses
Support for disabled tennis players and appropriate programmes.
