Tennis & Padel facility funding & advice

Indoor Community Tennis Projects

As part of the LTA facility strategy the LTA have used insight data and mapping technology to identify areas of demand for indoor tennis. The target locations have been established following a detailed demographic review of the UK market and existing indoor tennis centres with a proven sustainable business model.

Quick Access Loan Scheme

The facility loan scheme provides loans up to £250,000 to help venues deliver projects that will grow the number of people playing tennis. This scheme is part of our mission to grow tennis by making it relevant, accessible, welcoming and enjoyable. To attract new players within local communities it is critical that there is access to quality all year round facilities and therefore the LTA will prioritise investment into low cost indoor structures and floodlights.
