Tennis Able is registered as a not for profit company limited by guarantee. Most guarantee companies are not-for-profit companies, unlike a typical business they do not distribute their profits to their members but either retain them within the company or use them for some other purpose i.e. in our case providing more grouped coach tennis sessions. Further down the line we would like to evolve into a an official charity but at this time due to our size it does not make fiscal sense as the costs would outway the benefits.
The company registration number is: 13195880.
The company registered address is: 27 Old Gloucester Street, London, United Kingdom, WC1N 3AX
