Help and Support
Berkshire LTA has available funds which it wishes to offer as loans to assist clubs in delivering a small facility project or an activity intended to increase membership, participation, regular play, coaching and competition for all ages.
Venue Registration is the annual scheme for tennis venues across Great Britain to become an LTA member.. Registering entitles venues to receive a number of excellent benefits along with a wide range of support and services from the LTA and County Tennis Associations to help your venue deliver tennis to your members and participants.
From 1 October 2019 it will become mandatory for venues applying to register with the LTA to ensure all Level 3-5 coaches operating at their venue are LTA Accredited
From 1 October 2019, all LTA Registered Venues will be required to meet six safeguarding standards as part of their LTA Venue Registration.
This is a positive move and one which will help support venues in creating a safe, accessible, enjoyable and welcoming environment for everyone.
Nature Valley Big Tennis Weekends is an initiative to help tennis venues attract new people from the local community to come and try out your venue at fun and welcoming open days.
They coordinate a country-wide marketing campaign to raise awareness of the Nature Valley Big Tennis Weekends, particularly encouraging families to try tennis for free. This alongside free marketing materials to help your club promote the open day locally can significantly help you to raise awareness of your tennis club in the wider community.
