British Tennis Parent Advisory Group

What is the British Tennis Parent Advisory Group?

The British Tennis Parent Advisory Group is a representative group of parents and carers across Great Britain with an active interest in increasing participation in the sport.

The Group acts in an advisory capacity so that British Tennis has an accurate reflection of the views of parents and carers on a wide variety of issues, particularly how we engage and support families.

How to get involved

If you’re a parent or carer aged 18+, here’s a chance for you to get involved and make a difference, by being part of a parent advisory group which will help to shape British tennis. You don’t have to be a tennis fan or good at sport.

We are looking for parents and carers to help shape how British Tennis can grow as a sport of choice for children; how we can attract new families to the sport; and how we can better inform and support parents.

What does it involve?

As a member of the British Tennis Parent Advisory Group, for two years you will represent the interests of parents and carers in the sport at a national level.

You will advise on how we can shape projects and programmes to be more relevant and appealing to families; and help shape our parent support strategy and action plan. And being a part of the Group will enable you to make a difference; meet new people; learn new skills and feel part of a team.

Whether you and your family have never picked up a racket or you play regularly, we want to hear from you. You will need to commit to three half-days a year and a bit of ad-hoc feedback via email.
