A beneficial initiative of Halton UK's charitable projects to support aspiring, yet vulnerable, professional tennis players to develop sustainable careers.

Early in a professional tennis career, while rankings and reputations are being built, players are threatened by 3 vulnerabilities:

  • high rates of burning out from stress and anxiety due to a lack of resources
  • low income (small prize purses at low tier events)
  • lack of preparation for life after tennis

At HaltonUK, we have developed the PROV3 Programme to help players through this phase of their careers. We aim to achieve this using our definition of "winning":

To identify, gather and mobilise all our resources to go as far as we can

In this, our behaviours will be driven by our three key values (3V):

  • Excellence - the quality of being outstanding in all we do
  • Community - shared learning, experience and support
  • Team-ship - actively willing each other on, celebrating success

Consider a lone coal struggling to stay alight; ProV3 provides the hearth where each coal heats and is heated.

What ProV3 provides - our tactics

  • Provision of court time, coaching, strength and conditioning training, planning and competition scheduling
  • Regular get-togethers and training camps with on and off-court activities
  • Mentoring
  • Redistribution of financial investment
  • Traveling coaches to support players on the road
  • Develop a menu of professional support and further development opportunities that experts in their fields 'give' to members of the project
    e.g. accounting, social media training/support, website development, careers advice/training for life beyond tennis
