LTA Youth Programme

The tennis programme designed to give you skills for life!

Everyone aged 2-18 is welcome in the LTA Youth Programme; any shape, size, ability – it doesn’t matter. We just want to see you pick up a racket. 


It’s not just about tennis. It’s about kids improving mentally and physically, on and off the court.
