Kent is a very successful county when it comes to performance tennis and is supported by many committed coaches and clubs running high quality coaching and competition programmes.
LTA Supported Performance Clubs
RPDC - Regional Player Development Centre
Regional Player Development Centres (RPDCs) provide high-quality coaching environments which enable the best players from the regions to train regularly with each other.
These centres and their programmes are for players who are named on the National Pathway list; predominantly targeting players aged 14U.
These training environments are for players competing nationally who aspire to compete internationally at Tennis Europe and ITF events.
Kent has one Regional Player Development Centre which is Bromley Tennis Centre
10U Performance Programmes
The 10U Performance Programmes have been recognised by the LTA and County Associations as operators that are able to offer high quality training environments.
Whilst these programmes may deliver across all ages and standards, this status is with particular reference to their 10U performance programme.
It acknowledges their hard work, dedication, and track record in developing some of the best players in the country at 10U, alongside their aspirations to create the best 10U performance programmes across Great Britain.
These programmes have access to a high level of support, facilitated by one of the LTA’s 10U National Pathway Coaches.
Kent has four 10U Performance Programmes - Bromley Tennis Centre, Canterbury, Parklangley and Sevenoaks School
