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. 

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
