Inclusion initiatives and grants
We want to make sure our qualifications are welcoming and accessible to all, so that anyone can take their first steps on our Coaching Qualifications Pathway.
If you’re keen to get into coaching, you can access a free female taster course to try things out and see if it’s right for you. These courses are titled 'Pre-LTA Assistant (Level 1): Taster Course for Females' and can be viewed on the LTA Coach Development Courses page.
Discounted opportunities to qualify may also be available through your local Coach Development Centre. If you’re interested in a course taking place, you can contact them directly to discuss.
We’re committed to ‘Opening Up’ tennis with the hope of supporting more disabled people to become part of the future tennis coaching workforce in the UK.
If you’re disabled and/or have a long-term health condition that has lasted more than 12 months, we can support you on your journey to becoming a tennis coach.
Our new Coach Grant Scheme for Disabled People aims to support up to 50% of your course fee at Assistant or Instructor Level and a maximum of £300 at Level 3. If you wish to discuss this support and/or any reasonable adjustment that you may require on any course, please do get in touch with your local Coach Development Centre or speak to us.
Applicants interested in applying for the grant should follow this application link.
The LTA is committed to ensuring that our qualifications are accessible for all, which is why it is vital that all candidates where possible outline any reasonable adjustments/or special considerations you may require prior to attending the course. Please use this link to outline to the Coach Development Centre, LTA and Course Tutor the additional support needs that you will require on this course in order to maximise your learning.
The final decision made by the LTA Reasonable Adjustment panel cannot be challenged.
