We understand that the majority of places to play are underused and clubs, committee’s and local councils may not have the capacity to promote the increase usage of the facilities. We specialise in supporting local tennis providers by providing a wide range of support services that are proven to rapidly increase tennis participation at a grassroots level.Our Club Support Scheme is a unique opportunity for tennis clubs to develop their place to play, and benefit from a professional approach to programme delivery. We have created the scheme to support new or established tennis clubs by providing a wide range of comprehensive support services, with a mutual goal to increase club membership, participation and club income.As part of our Club Support Scheme, over the past year we have engaged with over 10,000 tennis players through our coaching provision and community/school engagements.  We have delivered 8,200 tennis coaching sessions at our partnered places to play and had over 35,000 tennis player visits at our coaching sessions in 2014.
