Pro Scholarship Programme
The Pro Scholarship Programme (PSP) is the highest level of support offered to developing players by the LTA. It is offered to players aged between 16 and 24 with the best chance of reaching the ATP/WTA top 100 singles within five years.
It is intended to develop more players capable of competing at Tour level, and to establish a strong cohort eligible for selection for Great Britain’s Davis and Fed Cup teams.
What does the PSP provide?
- Individually tailored support and world class coaching from the LTA Performance Team both at home and on Tour
- Access to a financial grant, intended to enable the player to employ uncompromised world-class coaching and dedicated personal strength and conditioning support
- Access to world class science and medicine support at the National Tennis Centre
The PSP is the final stage of the LTA Player Pathway before players become eligible for our programme of elite support, offered to those who establish themselves in the ATP/WTA top 100 singles or top 30 doubles.
Which players are on the programme?
|Name||County/Residence||How the PSP helps me...|
|Katie Boulter||Leicestershire||“Being on the PSP means I have strong network of people around me to help my development as a player. It’s great to work with a number of specialist individuals on different areas off the court, from strength & conditioning though to nutrition.”|
|Jodie Burrage||Surrey||“The extra backing from the LTA has really helped along the way. The PSP has allowed me to take a coach with me wherever I go and that really benefits my tennis. It’s really good to be part of that programme and the help we get through the LTA. The feedback and the match analysis and every little thing adds up.”|
|Harriet Dart||Middlesex||“It has enabled me to travel with my coach and other members of my team more frequently which alternatively would have been difficult financially. The financial help has made it a lot less stressful and helped me focus on my tennis. I’m very grateful for all the help from the LTA.”|
|Jack Draper||Surrey||“The support from the LTA has helped me to fund my tennis. It’s also helped me with tennis analysis, to watch what I’m doing and what areas to improve on. I’m thankful and grateful to have such a good structure around me.”|
|Fran Jones||Yorkshire||“By being part of this programme, I am given the opportunity to source coaches of high quality to accompany me to tournaments throughout the year, and I can fund a sports science team with great experience to help better my physical performance.”|
|Paul Jubb||Yorkshire||“I’m proud to have been selected for the PSP, and I’m really grateful to the LTA for giving me access to so much support at the start of my professional career.”|
"The PSP has been invaluable in allowing me to access not only coaching but also tennis specific conditioning , nutrition and psychology. This support, for which I am extremely grateful, has aided my development hugely and allowed me to carefully plan a full tournament schedule, at home and abroad."
