The Jayden Chittick Open

The Inaugural Jayden Chittick Open

Hello and welcome everybody to the fundraising page for the Inaugural Jayden Chittick Open. Jayden's friends have organised this day for a few reasons. 

The first reason is to celebrate the life of Jayden Chittick, a 25 year old male who unfortunately lost his battle with the Black Dog on the 20th November 2020. Tennis was one of Jayden's passions (one that he very much excelled at and loved to watch at this time of year with his lovely mother Lynne). In addition to this, Jayden always loved ensuring all his friends and peers were included, never leaving anybody out. What better way to make sure everybody is around than doing one of things he loved most!

The second reason is to assist in raising funds and awareness for The Black Dog Foundation, who do extraordinary work in Mental Health throughout all stages of life using evidence-based research. With suicide being the leading cause of deaths in Australians aged 18-44, it is imperative that this research is continued and ultimately implemented in the form of suicide prevention initiatives. This will in turn lead to better mental health outcomes for individuals at risk of suicide, their families, friends and the wider community.

The day will consist of a 32-team mixed doubles competition commencing from 11:00am onwards on the 23rd of January at Milton Tennis Courts, playing in a win or be eliminated format.

Special thanks goes to the Milton Ulladulla Tennis Club who have been kind enough to donate the tennis courts for the day.

Thank you to my Sponsors

I only knew Jayden as an incredibly cute, full of so much energy little kid, but followed him on social media as an adult and watched how he shared his journey which was such a brave and powerful thing to do. I'm sure he helped many by doing this. It is sad to see such a beautiful soul gone.

I only met Jayden a handful of times through my house mate. I didn't know him too well, but he was always the person with extra life in the room. News of his parting has left be surprised and blank. Rest easy dude.
