April 2019

Tennis4Cancer is a new and novel fundraising campaign, which aims to gather the tennis community across Ireland to raise vital funds for ARC Cancer Support Centres and the National Breast Cancer Research Institute.

The idea behind Tennis4Cancer was created by Grace Owens, a professional tennis coach. She is encouraging tennis clubs in Ireland to organise a fundraising event or tournament for their members during the month of April.

Former Ireland Number 1 and ex-ATP Tour Professional, Conor Niland has been agreed to be the Patron of this innovative campaign. Tennis clubs from all over Ireland are encouraged to get involved.

For further details and/or to register your club please contact Grace Owens

Tennis4Cancer has the official support and backing of Tennis Ireland & Tennis Coach Ireland.
