Community Indoor Tennis Centres

To establish target locations for future community indoor tennis centres, we modelled data from existing successful CITC’s. This helped to identify the demographic type, volume and catchment size of a successful CITC. This modelling was applied across England, Scotland and Wales to establish the areas of potential demand.  

The key metrics established are:

  • A target location must demonstrate a minimum threshold population of 70,000 within a 20 minute drive time of a target location. Of this population, at least 12,500 must identify as having an interest in playing tennis. Please note this drive time extends to 30 minutes for rural areas.
  • Filtered for competition within the catchment in order to prioritise the addressing of indoor tennis provision gaps.

This methodology has enabled us to identify 72 target locations for new indoor tennis venues in England, 12 in Wales and 12 in Scotland. Please note indoor projects in Scotland will be funded through the Transforming Scottish Indoor Tennis fund which is a partnership between the LTA, Sportscotland and Tennis Scotland.

The target locations will be reviewed on a regular basis to reflect (amongst other factors):

  • Emerging strategic housing developments that are approved and may alter the original demographic assumptions in a given target location
  • The expansion of existing tennis facilities in a given target location that may impact the original demographic assumptions
  • The development of new tennis and sports facilities, not included or known about in the original demographic review.

If you have a potential project within one of the identified strategic locations we would like to hear from you. Please fill out the expression of interest form.

Once we have this information then we will undertake a preliminarily assessment and then come back to you on the next steps to develop the scheme.
