#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 724 kilometres from Rutherglen to Wimbledon, arriving for the start of play on Day 1 of the Championships on Monday 28th June 2021.
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.
Meet our 12 brave members who are swapping their balls for cleats and training for six months to take on this mighty 724km challenge
We’re embarking on this challenge to raise funds for #RLTCProject100, in particular, our ambitious plans to build some covered tennis courts in nearby Overtoun Park as part of a vibrant community hub. Please donate by clicking the button below. All donations big or small are hugely welcome and will make a massive difference to this project, not to mention the morale of the team during long training rides.
In addition to supporting #RLTCProject100, the money raised from #PelotonToWimbledon will be used to fund Breakfast Clubs at two local Primary Schools (Bankhead and St Columbkille’s) to help ensure all children get a nutritious start to their school day.
These Breakfast Clubs are delivered by the Greggs Foundation and the money we raise will fund these clubs for at least the next two years. Beyond this we hope to establish a long-term relationship with these schools and the Greggs Foundation to this support this great cause into the future.
We’re hugely proud to be supported by the following wonderful local and national businesses. Not only are they helping cover the costs of #PelotonToWimbledon, but they are positively supporting our fundraising efforts. With their support we can focus all our energy on raising as much money as possible for this wonderful community project.
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
