Wimbledon Foundation seeks to get local community active
The Wimbledon Foundation, the charity of The All England Lawn Tennis Club and The Championships, has awarded grants totalling more than £50,000 to help local residents to be more physically active. The Get Set, Get Active Fund, launched by the Wimbledon Foundation in 2016, aims to help local people of all ages and abilities to take part in physical or sports activities.
Grants have recently been awarded to 26 local groups and clubs active in the boroughs of Merton and Wandsworth covering a varied range of pursuits from skateboarding sessions for young people to golf sessions for the over-60s.
