LTA

The National Governing Body for Tennis in Great Britain

www.lta.org.uk

The Lawn Tennis Association (LTA) is the National Governing Body for tennis in Great Britain, and exists to govern and grow tennis, from grassroots participation through to the professional game. 

The LTA’s vision is “Tennis Opened Up” and it’s on a mission to grow tennis by making it relevant, accessible, welcoming and enjoyable. The LTA works with schools, volunteers, coaches and venues across the whole country, and also represents the interests of over 1,000,000 Members, men and women, girls and boys, playing on more than 23,000 courts. 

The LTA runs and supports a network of 11,500 approved tournaments for players of all ages, the four corner-stones of which are the premier grass-court events leading up to The Championships, Wimbledon: the Rothesay Open Nottingham, the Rothesay Classic Birmingham, the cinch Championships (at The Queen’s Club, London) and the Rothesay International Eastbourne. 

“Understanding and positively influencing the tennis experiences of our young players, at such a seminal age, is vital. Our partnership with Podium builds on our 2022 review of our Regional Player Development Centres, and will deliver further significant insight into the challenges and opportunities faced by young players, their parents and coaches – providing transferrable learnings for our other tennis environments and even other sports. Expanding to young adults in due course, we will also be focusing on optimising education and communications relating to injury prevention and recovery so that more players can reach their potential.”
Michael Bourne, Performance Director at the LTA
