5 MINUTE READ

We launched our EDI Plan for Wales, aligned with our vision for tennis opened up across Wales, and our mission to transform Welsh communities through tennis.  

 Our plan is fully collaborative, working closely with the LTA (Governing Body for British tennis), and Sport Wales.  

LTA Inclusion Plan

Sport Wales Strategic Equality Plan

Within Tennis Wales we have focussed our work on; 

  • Inclusive leadership & governance  
  • Empowering people to be inclusive  
  • Tennis looking and feeling opened up  
  • Targeting our interventions and investment for greater diversity  
  • Holding ourselves accountable  

 Our current priorities in our EDI Plan for Wales include; 

  • Growing the number of women & girls playing through our W&G working group, and increasing the number of female tennis & padel coaches to exceed 30% from 19%. 
  • Embedding our LTA SERVES programme into all 22 Local Authorities in Wales and ensure the 10 highest  socio-economic areas of deprivation have access to the programme.
  • Deliver our anti-racist Wales action plan funded project, taking tennis into diverse communities who hadn’t previously had access to the sport. 
  • Growing our Open Court disability programme to exceed 40 venues across Wales, with over 1,000 regular participants taking part in adapted tennis and padel opportunities.  
  • Expand the provision of LGBTQ+ tennis and padel opportunities in Wales, targeting three new programmes. 
  • Establishing free parks tennis programmes in public parks across Wales to provide local people with a free entry point to the game. 
  • Embed a calendar of training for people working and volunteering in the sport to ensure inclusion is a golden thread in our sport.
