Open Tennis Programme

Our Open Court Programme is a national programme funded by Sport England and the LTA, which is delivered at a local level made up of; a collaboration of key partners actively promoting and delivering opportunities for disabled people to get involved in tennis through a customer focused approach. The main option provided is disability specific sessions such as; learning disability tennis, wheelchair tennis, visually impaired tennis and deaf tennis. However, as a sport we are also expanding our offer into other long term health conditions such as Mental Health and Dementia.

She Rallies

The vision of ‘She Rallies’ is to attract and retain more women and girls tennis in the UK by inspiring and empowering a female workforce to create more opportunities for women and girls in tennis. It falls into the LTA’s four year Women and Girls Strategy, championed by Judy Murray, which aims to significantly increase female participation in tennis across the UK, by developing a female workforce. By rallying together, we’re aiming to create opportunities for women and girls of all ages and experiences to be involved in tennis.

Studley Community Tennis Partnership

The current aims of the Studley Community Tennis Partnership are to develop tennis programmes, coach training and related activities, and to support coaching development in partnership with local projects.  It also has the ability to access funding in partnership with other organisations, to deliver programmes to the wider community.

One key element of the partnership is to work with the LTA alongside their programme of investment in local tennis facilities. In order for this investment to be successful, we need a structured programme of coach training and coach support, to enable continuity for these projects. At present, many programmes fail when a coach moves on as well as there being many existing projects who are struggling to access qualified coaches. The partnership can provide this organisational structure for smaller clubs and projects to access coaches across the county and assist them in developing new coaching programmes and tennis development.
