Support & Services

We support Places to Play with a number of bespoke solutions which includes (but is not limited to):

Support Services School programmes

Club Partnerships

Club Partnerships offer a unique opportunity to develop clubs, offering a professional and fully supported approach to tennis programme and club management solutions.

We do this by creating professionally delivered tennis programmes, alongside supporting other elements of club management, historically managed by volunteers. These include (but not limited to) supporting membership services, telephone/email communications, marketing and social media; which aims to reduce the administrative burden placed on volunteers.

Club Partnerships have been developed to support the retention, growth and financial sustainability of clubs. Our support solutions are offered free of charge to clubs that have an NTA tennis programme - we even provide a financial return too!

Support Services coach franchise scheme

Coach Partnerships

Coach Partnerships offer a unique opportunity for entrepreneurial tennis coaching to manage and run their own coaching programme using a proven and successful model that fully supports and builds sustainable coaching businesses.

Coaches joining on a partnership benefit from a large percentage of the overall revenue generated via the coaching programme, alongside taking full advantage of our support network and proven model that works.

Support Services School Programmes

School Partnerships

Our partnership with local schools helps us encourage children to get active and involved in the sport of tennis. We support schools in their tennis provision and regularly deliver school assemblies, taster days, curriculum and after school coaching to the pupils.

During our tennis sessions at the school the children will develop footwork and coordination, while learning to rally, serve, compete and score in a structured curriculum alongside reinforcing key life skills around teamwork and competition.

Our programmes provide a great introduction to tennis and we are able to offer the children a pathway to taking up tennis outside of school time at their local tennis venue.
