Everyone who plays tennis has picked up a tennis racket for the first time somewhere. Our goal is to give everyone in our area the chance to pick up a racket and discover what a wonderful sport tennis is. This is why Opening Tennis Up and making our sport accessible for all is at the heart of work, and why grass roots tennis is the key to our success.
Durham & Cleveland LTA and LTA Region – North work with our 29 LTA registered tennis clubs and venues and more than 25 local authorities, parks and community organisations to make tennis accessible across all parts of our area. Whether your first step onto a tennis court leads to an appearance at Wimbledon, playing professionally, or just socially at club level or even just an occasional holiday hit on a public court – we work to give you that opportunity.
The many coaches in our area also play a vital part in those early steps, whether that is providing friendly, welcoming coaching sessions for beginners both young and old or taking tennis into our primary schools and giving every child a chance to show their talent. We work with the LTA to provide the training and support to get our coaches into schools and build successful programmes.
If you are looking for somewhere to play in Durham & Cleveland, links to all our Clubs and Venues are below. As LTA registered venues, you have the assurance that they all have policies and procedures to ensure good practice, to provide a safe environment where all are welcome, where equality and diversity are central to their operation, and where a Welfare Officer is appointed and comprehensive safeguarding measures are in place. Feel free to contact them directly to arrange to play. If you’re not sure where your nearest club is, Find a Place to Play here.
