ABOUT BEACH TENNIS UK
Beach Tennis UK (BTUK) is a Brighton based non-profit volunteer run organisation founded in 2011 by Kasia Chmielewska and Julie Salmon (former British No1 tennis player). Since its inception BTUK has been running regular club sessions in Brighton and being the home of BTUK we been striving to develop and grow the sport there.
Although resources and funds are limited BTUK has endeavoured to bring the sport to other areas in the UK through running various tournaments. One of our highlights was organising and managing the 2013/2014 the European Beach Tennis Championships which took place in Brighton, bringing players to the city from all over Europe.
In 2019 BTUK is introducing the sport to other areas of the UK – Bath, Isle of Wight, London and St Albans.
BTUK has also been awarded a grant from Paddle Round the Pier in 2018/2019 for coaching and safeguarding, which will help develop the sport further.
BTUK has also partnered up the Grace Eyre Foundation to provide Disability Beach Tennis and with Tennis Sussex to provide various Beach Tennis activities. All of which will help develop and promote the sport further.
