Ways to Donate

Many who have enjoyed Real Tennis are looking for an opportunity to give back something to the game. To make it easier to support us, The Dedanists’ Foundation is delighted to launch a brand new fundraising initiative, 'Friend of the Dedanists’ Foundation', which provides a new and different way to help us continue with the good work we do. This new initiative will make it easier for you to become part of a group that helps the Dedanists’ Foundation to deliver its diverse and important programmes encouraging young people to discover and enjoy the game of Real Tennis. Real Tennis is often considered a sport for more privileged people, but the reality is that many young people including university students would like to play but simply can’t afford to, especially during the current cost-of-living crisis.

Your gift will assist the crucial work of The Dedanists’ Foundation by:

· Awarding grants to clubs for junior participation

· Helping university student real tennis clubs 

· Organising inter-club junior competitions

The Foundation has two levels of Patron supporters, Founder Patrons and Diamond Patrons, who provide significant donations to support its programmes. Donations to The Dedanists’ Foundation, a registered charity, will attract tax relief depending on the donor’s tax status. Each of the Founder Patrons will be invited to become a Member of the Foundation. We have an Annual Patrons’ lunch at Queen’s Club and present all new Patrons with a very tasteful tie.
