#RLTCProject100 and in particular raising the funds to build our Overtoun Covered Courts, will be a herculean task!
We want to embark on a challenge that will raise lots of money to help deliver this project, raise its profile as high as we can to give us the best chance of success and match the ambition of the project itself.
We’ve assembled a hugely committed and clearly mad team who are going to attempt to cycle 1,000 miles from Rutherglen to Wimbledon, arriving for the start of play on Day 1 of the Championships on Monday 29th June 2020.
We’ll swing by our sister club Wortham LTC in Suffolk who’ll join us on the last leg into London. Each evening along the way we’ll find a bit of ground in a prominent location to set-up a mini-tennis court and give passers-by the chance to play some tennis.
We’re not afraid of hard work to achieve something amazing and we have form on this!
In June 2016 we completed Expedition #MOUNTENNIS to raise funds to save and expand into the derelict courts at Burnside Bowling Club
With over 1000k of cycling over 6 days, it’s safe to say us novice cyclists are a bit worried.
We’ll post our plans and update you on our progress here, so please check-back regularly.

We’re looking for support from local and national businesses not just to cover the costs of #PelotonToWimbledon, but to positively support our fundraising efforts. This can be through cash donations or provision of services in kind (equipment, supplies, logistics etc.).
Not only will they have helped a great cause, but we’ll make sure they get lots of fantastic publicity in what promises to be an amazing adventure that will capture the imagination of the British tennis community and beyond through a variety of ways including:
We have a range of sponsorship opportunities available including:
