The Enjoy Tennis programme is a nationwide initiative to provide tennis access to those with intellectual disabilities. Currently there are some 40,000 people with an intellectual disability in Ireland and they don’t get many opportunities to play tennis or to receive coaching.
So, on most Friday afternoons since November 2015, players and supervisors from organisations associated with St. Michael’s House come to Ashbrook. They have a one-hour session with two specialist coaches. Our volunteers also attend and join in all the activities.
On 23 April, 2018 Catherine will engage in the Swim a Mile initiative (a mile is 64 lengths of a 25m pool) on behalf of our programme. Many members sponsored Catherine last year and we hope many can do so again.
Contributions can be made online via our Subscriptions Page.
