Local Player Development Centre (LPDC)

What is the LPDC programme?

Local Player Development Centres (LPDC) are national centres that have been selected to receive funding by the national governing body (LTA) to support its under 10 performance pathway.

What can we expect? A big Federer backhand? A cheeky Murray chip-shot? A storming Serena serve?

 A quiet revolution is going on in tennis and you can be involved. Local Tennis Leagues run friendly, competitive tennis leagues throughout a number of our centres in the UK.

 The leagues pit similar level opponents up against each other in a round-robin format.

 Entering your local tennis league gives you the chance to win a free tube of tennis balls, free British Tennis Membership (meaning entry into our own Wimbledon ballot) and a prize for topping your league! There’s more than just pride at stake!

 You can play your most local league here at Better - with regular matches taking place throughout the area. You choose where you play, meaning friendly, competitive tennis really is on your doorstep! If you'd like to sign-up, please find your local league at https://localtennisleagues.com/leagues, entries to the next round close soon so be quick!
