Park Tennis Project

5 MINUTE READ

The Park Tennis Project is a nationwide investment by the UK Government and LTA Tennis Foundation, delivered by the LTA, to refurbish public tennis courts and open the sport to many more people.

It is a key part of how we are delivering our vision of ‘Tennis opened up’ and mission to grow tennis by making it relevant, accessible, welcoming, and enjoyable.

This investment from the UK Government and LTA Tennis Foundation will bring thousands of existing park tennis courts in poor or unplayable condition back to life for the benefit of communities across the country, as well as making it easier to find, book and get on court.

This is so important because park tennis courts are vital for providing opportunities for people of all ages and abilities to pick up a racket, get active, and enjoy playing tennis.

They are key to tennis’ long-term future as they are often where many people first play the game and are venues that have higher participation rates amongst women and girls and disadvantaged communities.

There are currently 1.7 million adults and many more children who play tennis in a local park every year, and park tennis courts are particularly important in providing affordable, engaging, and accessible opportunities to play. Through the project, our aim is to substantially increase annual participation in parks by over 500,000 players in the next few years.
