Junior Participation Grant
The Mooloolaba Tennis Club Junior Participation Grant has been established by the MTC Management Committee to encourage young people aged 18 years and under to participate in tennis by providing financial support towards the costs of tennis participation. We have established a Fund Pool and are actively fundraising to support the Program.
Funding is intended to assist local young people with the costs of tennis participation whether it be to contribute to coaching fees, fixture fees, tournament or equipment costs. Funds are intended to support those who would benefit from Club support to continue or increase their participation at MTC or in the wider tennis community via tournaments or other related competition activities.
In line with the objects of the MTC, being to promote, encourage and advance the game of tennis, the Management Committee remains committed to supporting juniors at our Club.
