Our objectives are:

  1. to increase the number of people engaging with Northumberland LTA through increased attendance at Club Forums, an increase in the number of coaches in the Coach Network and attendance at Club Forums, and an increase in Club engagement through the roll-out of a County Lead Volunteer contact programme with Clubs.
  2. To increase the number of players playing more often.
  3. To promote County tournaments, Team Challenge and adult singles events.
  4. To increase competition for mini orange, particularly in winter months.
  5. To develop recreational competitive opportunities.

We aim to deliver our objectives through a series of strategic policies under the headings of visibility, innovation, investment, accessibility, engagement, performance and leadership.
