The LTA Padel Peformance Pathway is designed to identify, develop and support the leading padel players in Great Britain with the overall aim of achieving success on the international stage.

We have created and are developing a series of funded initiatives that provide training and support at different stages of player’s development journey.


To be eligible for selection consideration to any of the padel performance initiatives or programmes, players must meet the following minimum eligibility criteria:

  • Are eligible to represent Great Britain in FIP approved competitions and have a current & valid British Passport;
  • Have not represented another country in a FIP event during the past three years;
  • Hold a current Play, Play+ or Compete membership with LTA Advantage;
  • Are not currently serving any sanction for an anti-corruption or anti-doping rule violation under any relevant anti-corruption or anti-doping regulations.

Please note that for specific selection processes, such as those for national team representation, there may be additional eligibility criteria that players need to meet. Details of these can be found in each specific policy document.
