WHAT WE DO
Officially we are called ‘The Kent County Lawn Tennis Association’ (KCLTA) and we are a member the Lawn Tennis Association (LTA), the National Governing Body for tennis. We use the brand ‘Kent Tennis’ as a more user-friendly name. All tennis venues, clubs and organisations in Kent are invited to be members of Kent Tennis and along with players, coaches and officials, are offered support in some way.
Our values are:
We are innovative, involved, proud, open and fair,
and believe in accessible tennis for all.
Our overall aim is to sustain the
IDENTITY and SPIRIT of Kent Tennis through:
Maintaining our reputation of being a top British tennis County for our achievements, forward thinking and being INNOVATIVE
Ensuring the management of Kent Tennis is integrated with both LTA staff and volunteers being fully INVOLVED in our efforts to achieve planned objectives and LTA priorities, and are recognised for good work
Making Kent tennis people feel PROUD to be in Kent, team players showing loyalty and team spirit at every level of Inter-County team tennis, and players are duly recognised
Delivering communication which is OPEN and effective to, from and between all Kent Tennis people so that everyone is aware of developments, support and opportunities
Ensuring Kent investment (and LTA investment) in Places to Play and Performance is FAIR, purposeful and well considered, and results are monitored
Maintaining a guiding belief that tennis is ACCESSIBLE for all and that Kent Tennis people are supported in their efforts to manage financially sustainable tennis venues, and able to promote tennis in their local area.
