LGBTQ+ Tennis Club Launches in Cardiff

• 2 MINUTE READ

Tennis Wales has supported the launch of a new LGBTQ+ tennis club in Cardiff this month, helping open the sport up to more people.

The newly launched Cardiff Baseliners club is being led by local player Neil Roberts, who is passionate about providing opportunities for other LGBTQ+ people to play socially and access coaching in the city.

The investment from Tennis Wales is part of a wider Inclusion Plan being developed and rolled out in 2022 to ensure the sport is relevant, accessible, welcoming and enjoyable right across the country.

Commenting on the launch of the new LGBTQ+ tennis club, Simon Johnson, CEO of Tennis Wales said

“I’m really pleased that we’re able to support Neil and the new Cardiff Baseliners Club. The launch event was superb, really well supported by the local community and we’re now hosting weekly coaching and social tennis for the LGBTQ+ community. Our aspiration is to scale this across Wales, so that this accessible offer is available in more places throughout 2022”

You can find the Cardiff Baseliners on Facebook and Instagram, with regular weekly sessions now freely available at Heath Park in Cardiff every Saturday from 12.00 – 14.00.
