In July 2015, two of the Foundation’s trustees, Ben Haining and Steve Harding cycled over 300 miles over 3 days to raise money for the Elena Baltacha Foundation to help fulfil Bally’s wish by getting more children playing tennis.These efforts raised an incredible £15k.

A year later, Ben and Steve are taking on another riding challenge, this time as part of an EBF team with 15 friends and supporters to ride a swift 100 miles in the Ipswich Crafted Classique bike ride to continue to raise awareness and funds for the Foundation. The ride is a challenging event completed by hundreds of riders through the stunning Suffolk landscape and picturesque coastal scenes.

About the charity

Before her death in May 2014, Elena Baltacha set up her charity with one goal - to give more children, from all backgrounds, the opportunity to learn to play tennis. The Elena Baltacha Foundation is committed to making sure Elena's work continues and that we keep enriching kids' lives through sport.
