LTA Youth Venue Accreditation for RWB TC

Royal Wootton Bassett Tennis Club is proud to announce its attainment of LTA Youth Recognised Venue status, marking a significant milestone in our commitment to promoting tennis among young players. LTA Youth represents a groundbreaking initiative designed to make tennis accessible and enjoyable for children of all ages, genders, abilities, disabilities, and backgrounds. It stands as the first-ever national curriculum for tennis, drawing upon leading expertise and insights from both athlete development principles and feedback from parents and players alike.

"We are thrilled to have embraced the LTA Youth curriculum, and receiving recognition as an LTA Youth Recognised Venue is a testament to our dedication," remarked Paul Meakin, chair of RWB Tennis Club. "Our coaching staff led by Ali Ward has fully integrated the LTA Youth principles, utilizing the accompanying videos to enrich our sessions and deliver an unparalleled on-court experience for our players. The response from both players and parents has been overwhelmingly positive, as we collectively emphasize the importance of this approach for the holistic development of each child."

Julie Jones, LTA Delivery Manager, expressed her delight at the club’s achievement: "I am delighted that the clubs’ tennis team has gained this prestigious award. Witnessing numerous junior players benefiting from this innovative approach week after week has been truly inspiring. The implementation of LTA Youth principles has enhanced the quality of the sessions and fostered a more enjoyable and enriching experience for young players as they progress in their tennis journey."

Royal Wootton Bassett Tennis Club is committed to collaborating closely with the LTA to maximize opportunities and extend our reach within the local community. Through our ongoing efforts, we aim to provide even more avenues for individuals and families to engage with tennis and all the benefits it brings.
