Reach out for friends in Poland

As an LGBTQ organization, the GLTA aims for diversity in tennis, which shouldn’t know boundaries, but still does... In Western Europe and the United States of America, where most GLTA tournaments reside, LGBTQ rights are supported. The tennis team of the Antwerp Brilliant Games wants to support players of a number of countries in Europe where no GLTA tournament exists or where it is expensive to participate in other GLTA tournaments. This year together with the Katowice SeRCE team we will support some Polish players.

You can contribute by adding 5 euro or more with your entry, or buy some tickets for our raffle during the tournament and win a free entry for Amsterdam, Paris, Dublin, Zurich, Katowice or our own Mixed Doubles tournament, all in 2023.
