– Service to others (family, neighbours, charity etc…)
– Making a positive contribution to their local community or school
– Displaying acts of goof citizenship
– Creating opportunites for others.

Paige Murphy, the Head of the Wimbledon Foundation, said: “Inspiring the next generation and creating opportunites for young people is central to the Wimbledon Foundation’s work. While the last two years have been extremely challenging for young people, we know that there are many who have stepped up to help their communities. We want to give two people from Merton and Wandsworth the recognition they deserve through this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to step out ont0 Centre Court and performs the coin toss at the Wimbledon Finals.”
