Evonne Goolagong to launch Indigenous tennis initiative
Evonne Goolagong Cawley will tomorrow launch the Learn Earn Legend! Tennis Come and Try Days in New South Wales for young Indigenous Australians.
Australian tennis great Evonne Goolagong Cawley will be in Sydney tomorrow to launch the Learn Earn Legend! Tennis Come and Try Days in New South Wales for young Indigenous Australians.
Goolagong Cawley, an ambassador for Learn Earn Legend!, will launch the initiative at the National Centre of Indigenous Excellence in the Sydney suburb of Redfern, along with National Indigenous Coach Ian Goolagong.
The Learn Earn Legend! initiative aims to encourage and support young Indigenous Australians to stay at school, gain employment and be a legend for themselves, their family and their community.
Learn Earn Legend! Tennis Come and Try Days will commence on 20 May at City Community Tennis in the Sydney suburb of Surry Hills, run by the Evonne Goolagong Foundation in conjunction with Tennis Australia.
The clinics are designed to encourage young Indigenous Australians to pick up a racquet, have fun and give tennis a real go, with the aim to increase the number of Indigenous girls and boys playing tennis to help improve their health, education and employment opportunities.
Grafton and Griffith will also host Learn Earn Legend! Tennis Come and Try Days on 24 and 26 May respectively.
