The Annual Ladies invitational
In 1984, a group of women from the Toronto Lawn Tennis Club organized a small tennis tournament, raised a small amount of money and donated that money to charity. Over the past 30 years, this tournament has grown into the Philpott Ladies’ Doubles Invitational Tournament and Gala, which now is held annually at the end of January and attended by over 250 women from more than 40 teams from the greater Toronto area.
While the Tournament was first hosted by the Toronto Lawn, where Doug Philpott was an active member, over time a number of other private tennis clubs stepped up to host the event and today, the hosting is shared by The Toronto Lawn, The Badminton & Racquet Club, The Boulevard Club, The Granite Club and the Toronto Cricket and Skating Club, who will be hosting the 2020 Ladies Invitational.
Philpott Children’s Tennis is constantly growing and is determined to continue expanding.
What Our Philpott Campers Say
Philpott Children’s Tennis would like to thank all of you and your support. Your contribution to Philpott Childrens Tennis allows over 8,500 prioritized children and youth across Toronto each year to play tennis free-of-charge. With your help, we can continue to expand our program and have a deeper engagement with the kids through more camps and more tennis. Philpott Children’s Tennis, along with our Philpott Campers, Parents, Volunteers and Coaches say THANK YOU!
Run a Philpott Fundraiser
Participants collect pledges from family and friends and play tennis from 2pm until midnight with many of the participants breaking their curfews for the first time in a great cause. Check out our 2018 Tennis-a-Thon video!
Automatically add $5 to $10 to your membership fees and write a one-time cheque to Philpott Children’s Tennis at the end of your membership drive. You may also attach an additional fee to an event or tournament. Make sure you let members know that part of their fees will go to support a great cause!
Set up a “DONATE NOW” button (provided by Philpott Children’s Tennis) and ask each member to donate $5, $10 or $20 on your home page.
Add a silent auction to one of your events. If you are running a big end of the year event you can ask members or partners to donate Auction Items. This is a great way to get members engaged, add some fun to your event and raise a little money for a charity.
During the month of May, we are asking for new and gently used racquets, and most especially junior racquets, to be collected and donated to our Philpott children. To activate this program at your club, please have a club ambassador connect with us to get started.
