The LTA’s £125 million fund to improve grassroots tennis
Transforming British Tennis Together is the largest and most exciting capital investment programme the LTA has ever undertaken.
This is the chance for local partners to work alongside the LTA to transform tennis facilities in your local community and get more people playing this great game. Whether you’re a club, a local authority, an educational institution, or some other body, the LTA want to help you to come together with other local partners to create the right mix of facilities to get more people playing tennis in your community.
TBBT aims to reduce the barriers to playing tennis by doubling the number of floodlit and covered courts across the UK over the next ten years, increasing available playing hours. The initiative will also see the LTA work with local communities across the region to:
- Install online booking and entry systems so everyone can book a tennis court easily from their mobile phone, computer or tablet;
- Refurbish courts, clubhouses and other social spaces to ensure players have a great experience every time they visit; and
- Support other innovative and creative ideas that meet local demand.
The LTA is calling on tennis clubs, parks, local government, volunteers, coaches and businesses across the region to come together and register their interest in bidding for the funds to transform their local tennis courts. For more information visit the LTA website.
