The John Lyon’s Charity awards a £105,000 grant for Wallball & Fives development at the Westway Sports Centre.

UK Wallball & the Eton Fives Association (EFA) is delighted to announce that John Lyon’s Charity has made available a grant of £35,000 per year for three years, 2016-2018, to contribute towards the costs of a Wallball & Fives Manager/Coach and an Assistant Coach at the Westway Centre, Shepherds Bush, London.

The EFA, in collaboration with UK Wallball, will be in charge of delivering an ambitious programme of developing Eton Fives and Wallball at the Centre. Outreach targets include:

  • Schools in local boroughs
  • University Fives (especially the new Imperial College facility)
  • Youth Clubs
  • Disabled people
  • Over 45s
  • Family Fives
  • Women’s Fives
  • Ethnic Minorities

The only way that such an ambitious programme can be achieved is by having dedicated outreach and coaching staff at the Centre, which has the only publicly owned Fives courts in the UK. It will build on the success of the local Westway Club and the popular twice weekly Pay and Play sessions.

The EFA is now looking to fill two positions as soon as possible: Manager/Coach (full-time or job-share) Assistant Coach (part-time) Both positions will report to the EFA Board.
