Supporting my child in competing

We know it can feel like there is a lot to understand when your child is competing, so we have pulled together some useful resources to support you in your tennis parenting journey.

READY, PLAY – An Introductory Guide to Competition

We have launched a new resource explaining the LTA Competition Pathway, called READY, PLAY.

The online guide features key information to help parents and carers to find and enter their child in a competition as well as understanding the competition pathway and competition measures. It also provides important guidance on how best to support children when they are competing so that everyone can have a positive competition experience.

Further information about your child and competing can be found over on the Competitions pages:
