10U Performance Programmes

The 10U Performance Programmes have been recognised by the LTA and County Associations as operators that are able to offer high quality training environments.

Whilst these programmes may deliver across all ages and standards, this status is with particular reference to their 10U performance programme.

It acknowledges their hard work, dedication, and track record in developing some of the best players in the country at 10U, alongside their aspirations to create the best 10U performance programmes across Great Britain.

These programmes have access to a high level of support, facilitated by one of the LTA’s 10U National Pathway Coaches.

It is our hope that this network, which comprises of 62 of the most capable 10U Performance Programmes across England and Wales, will play a pivotal role in the early-stage development of aspiring performance players and, ultimately, the success of British tennis in the long term.
