Pro-Development Player Funding
The highest level of support available is allocated to players achieving the competing at the very highest level internationally for their age-group. These players receive a 12 month funding agreement and are supported through funding for their coaching and access to the National Tennis Centre.
2016 will see the development and roll-out of a new long-term High Performance (HP) strategy for British Tennis. Although work on this is advanced the process of consultation and refinement will not be complete until June and therefore any major changes to the way we support the development of players with the potential to excel on the international stage will not be confirmed and rolled out until the second half of the year.
However, we recognise that for players already competing at this level or aspiring to, clarity is needed now on the possible support available in order to plan the year ahead. The document below therefore explains a series of changes we are making to individual player support that we will activate from February 1, 2016 and will run until December 31, 2016.
2016 support for High Performance Players over 16.
