About Bedfordshire Tennis

Bedfordshire LTA is the associated body for tennis in Bedfordshire. We’re a not for profit organisation registered with the LTA of Great Britain. We work in partnership towards a vision of ‘tennis opened up’ alongside our partners. Collaboratively we work with our sponsors to make tennis relevant, accessible, welcoming & enjoyable.

Our tennis network includes:

  • 25 registered tennis clubs
  • 27 accredited coaches
  • 204 volunteers
  • 11 park sites with courts

Each year our registered members elect a Committee who has the responsibility for running the sport in Bedfordshire. The main Committee meet four times a year to determine the strategy of tennis in Bedfordshire and Management Committee meet up to eight times a year to deliver the strategy and oversee the running and development of the sport.

The committee’s main tasks include:

  • Supporting all clubs in the county on development, maintenance, facilities, policies, standards
  • Managing county training sessions through all junior age groups
  • The selection process of County Cup teams
  • Running the Junior & Adult County Closed, County Road to Wimbledon and the League Competitions
  • Oversight of seniors’ tennis in Bedfordshire, including selection of representative age group teams
  • Helping to promote our clubs and coaching programmes

Leading the Committee in Bedfordshire is our Chair Francis Caldwell and President Sue Bullerwell. Dave Rawlinson, a strong participant in Bedfordshire will become the President of the LTA in 2020.
