MLTCC Bursary

(Malahide Tennis & Croquet Club Tennis Bursary, hereafter referred to as the MLTCC Tennis Bursary).
M.L.T.C.C. operates a Bursary to promote the continued growth and development of tennis at our club.

Set up
There is a sub-committee established to manage the MLTCC Tennis Bursary scheme.
There are three Trustees comprising of the Treasurer, Ex-Club Officer and International Player. The trustees can serve for no more than one three-year term.

Any member of the club can make a application for support.

Applications for bursary funding should be submitted on the official application form and no funds can be made available until that application is approved by the bursary committee.

Please ensure that the bursary applications are made in a timely manner as we will not accept applications to validate retrospective spends.

We ask that no individual commits any bursary funds without this formal approval.

A non-member can make an application for support for club membership fees.

Each applicant is typically limited to one application per annum but there may be exceptions to this (example where an under privilaged player is supported to join the club and then may need help with coaching etc).

The objective is to support and grow our club and tennis either by subsidising membership fees, providing coaching for development of specific individuals and to support league tennis as appropriate at our club.
All can apply for the MLTCC Tennis Bursary using the official application form. Individual players who benefit from the bursary will be expected to support and promote MLTCC tennis club in an agreed capacity.
