Elena Baltacha Foundation
Elena Baltacha set up her Academy with one goal – to give more children, from all backgrounds, the opportunity to learn
to play tennis.
The Academy, initially based in Ipswich (UK) has helped many children from all backgrounds with coaching and peformance
support, including helping many children from deprived areas and disadvantaged backgrounds, with free and subsidised
coaching and performance support.
With the help of volunteers, corporate sponsors, coaches and parents we are able to bring tennis to more and more children every year. Some progressing far enough to join our Elite Squad, where these players are given world class coaching and support to nurture them through junior competitions and beyond.
Elena Baltacha (Bally to most) had a very strong vision for her academy, it is our job to ensure this legacy is fulfilled through the academy and schools.
