The Youth Charter ‘22’ Tenniswise Report provides a unique social and cultural review of the past, present and future tennis provisions to our young people and their communities, locally, nationally and internationally. This report is one of the most comprehensive and inclusive consultative studies of its kind, reflecting eight years of dialogue and discussion with players, parents, administrators, coaches and tennis enthusiasts. From the raw talent of Moss Side to the leafy suburbs of urban, suburban and rural communities, the Youth Charter ‘22’ Tenniswise Report sets out the challenges and opportunities for the sport to help deliver the ‘Inspire a Generation’ legacy pledges of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
This report reflects the unbelievable spirit and culture of Games activity that goes beyond the winning - the taking part. This document presents how the social and cultural development of young people and communities was delivered within Manchester's bidding and hosting of major Games. The report also reveals the unique and untold programme reflected in 1,000 young people, 100 each, from ten communities of social and cultural disaffection and deprivation. The legacy of the 'Connecting Communities' experience and the four year proposals of the Citizenship in Action initiative are revealed. Again, a must for any policy or delivery decision maker.
