How it works?
We receive donations of people’s unloved and unwanted tennis rackets. We clean them up, re-grip and re-string before redistributing them to our Breakfast Club children at schools in deprived areas.
All children attending Max’s Breakfast Club, whose parents complete a short questionnaire, will receive a goody bag which includes their very own tennis racket to keep.
In order to make this a sustainable and environmentally friendly gift, we have set up our Unloved & Unwanted campaign. Our goal is to recycle and rehome these unwanted rackets, putting them in the hands of our programme children, who otherwise wouldn’t get the opportunity to own their own racket.
How you can help
DONATE YOUR OLD RACKETS! Either send these directly to GIYM or visit one of our dropboxes at designated collection points.
If you are a school or tennis club request a FREE racket collection dropbox and encourage your pupils or members to donate their old rackets.
Help us to raise awareness by joining our campaign on Instagram. Take a picture of yourself donating your unloved and unwanted racket and post on Instagram. Tag 5 friends who you can encourage to do the same!
We are thrilled to have the support of the Wimbledon Foundation which is backing our campaign.
