Player Funding Scheme
In recent years Essex Tennis has implemented a Player Funding Scheme which seeks to assist our more promising young players in their endeavours to improve and enable them to represent the county in events and tournaments. These players will have to meet certain criteria to enable them to be awarded a grant. At the present time this is currently under review.
Regrettably due to the recent pandemic and the adverse financial effect on Essex Tennis Funds this scheme is suspended for the time being. It will be kept under continual review, financial forecasts appear to indicate that this is unlikely to be reinstated before 2023.
