Playing for a Cause Fundraiser – Friday 20 November 2020

Manning Tennis Club will once again be Playing for a Cause as we look to raise funds for Pancare Foundation to enable them to support individuals and families impacted by Pancreatic Cancer, fund vital research and continue their efforts to raise awareness.

Our annual Playing for a Cause fundraiser, an event close to our hearts, will be held on Friday 20 November from 5pm onwards. The fundraiser promises to be the perfect way to usher in the weekend with junior match play, timed team competition, pickleball, bingo, food including a sausage sizzle, raffles, auctions and the bar facilities available throughout the evening.

Fundraising efforts

As part of our fundraising efforts, we’ve set up an online Playing for a Cause donation page which people can share with their network. We’re also encouraging people to create their own donation page for Pancare Foundation, sharing why they are playing for a cause.

Make sure you remember to join the MTC Playing for a Cause fundraising team through this donation link (or searching for MTC Playing for a Cause). The individual that raises the most money throughout November will be in the running to receive a prize.

Junior Social Match Play - 5pm to 6pm

This year, the fundraiser will be introducing a junior match play element from 5pm to 6pm for juniors 15 and under who are able to play matches using green or yellow ball.

Entry is $5 per person and at this stage we will be limited to 20 participants. You can register to participate by signing up on Eventbrite (sign up for junior match play ticket) or emailing us your name, age and playing ability if you're new to the club. For the younger ones who may not quite be up to playing matches as yet, we'll set up a court with mini nets to use with parents (if you wish) so you don't miss out.

Team Event: Timed Doubles Tournament – 6.30pm to 7.45pm

As part of the fundraiser, we’ll be holding a Team Competition from
