Competition Management System

The LTA is implementing a new, market-leading competition management system for domestic competition in Great Britain, to allow players to search, enter and withdraw from competitions. The LTA have partnered with leading competition software company Visual Reality to provide the new system, which will replace all competitions functionality for competitions taking place from 1 September 2020.

As part of the LTA’s vision to open up tennis to many more people, we are committed to making playing tennis easier and more accessible for anyone, and specifically making it easy for people to find and access tennis competitions. The implementation of a new system has been long overdue, and so the LTA is making a significant investment to replace the current tools for players, parents, organisers and officials. In developing it, we’ve taken in on board feedback from competition organisers, officials, players and parents to provide the best possible user experience.

The new system will do everything the current one does but be more reliable, robust and faster, improving the customer experience of finding and entering a competition.

Features of the new system include:

  • A personalised player homepage with details of the tournament you've entered, player statistics, tournaments and leagues all in one place for you to view
  • Ability to ‘favourite’ tournaments and leagues you're interested in as well as following other players and your venue
  • Single sign-on across LTA platforms to login with one username and password and navigate between websites

The introduction of the new system provides a platform for us to develop and add new features on an ongoing basis, with these being implemented in phases. Planned improvements include recommended/similar tournaments, and we are also investigating whether payment can be taken when a player is accepted rather than when they enter.

The system launches on Monday 17August for competitions which take place from Tuesday 1 September onwards. Competitions which start on or before Monday 31 August will continue to use the existing Competition Search.
