Elena Baltacha Foundation

We provide affordable tennis opportunties to children from all backgrounds

Story

"If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two Imposters just the same" 

These are the famous words of Rudyard Kipling which greet every Tennis player as they walk on to Centre Court at Wimbledon. Bally could have written them herself, because this is exactly what she did.

Bally created her Academy to give children from under-privileged backgrounds  the opportunity to play tennis. Throughout 2016-17  I will continue to raise  money for her Foundation.

She was a kind, funny and warm hearted lady, who is greatly missed. She inspired me to start running, and is the main motivation behind it.
