Lawn Tennis Association (LTA)

LTA support the Beavers Sports Activity Badge, helping young people be active and develop physical skills through tennis and related games.

LTA are our new supporters of the Beavers Sports Activity Badge. They have helped us develop a collection of fun activities for the badge, which introduce young people to tennis; and are offering all Beavers who complete the activities a 10% discount on their LTA Youth Start Programme.

LTA is the National Governing Body for tennis in Great Britain, Channel Islands and the Isle of Man. LTA's vision is ‘Tennis opened up’, and their mission is to grow tennis by making it relevant, accessible, welcoming and enjoyable. 

Tennis is an amazing sport. Anyone can play; whatever their motivation or ability, from all communities and backgrounds. At any age and for a whole lifetime, tennis provides physical, social and mental rewards both on and off the court. 

LTA want tennis to be open to as many people as possible, across the whole of Britain.
