What can you do to support your child playing tennis? 

At the LTA we’re on hand to help you and your children on your tennis journey, as they progress with the sport. 

Parents in Tennis 2023

During the month of October we delivered our second ‘Parents in Tennis’ month.

The aim of the month was to provide the parents/carers of competitive tennis players with a series of engaging and informative online sessions, helping them to be better equipped to support their child through their tennis journey. Sessions were delivered by experts and covered a range of topics.

You can read more about the sessions that took place and watch the recordings of some sessions via the guide below:

What is the Parent Support Programme? 

Parents play a key role in sport and kids need their support and encouragement. 

We work closely with sports psychology experts from Loughborough University and the University of Roehampton to offer help – what we call the Parent Support Programme. 

The Parent Support Programme is made up of three parts: 

  • Stage One: Start Competing Guide 
  • Stage Two: Competition Parenting Workshops 
  • Stage Three: Mental and Emotional Skills Guide
