We are delighted to announce that USN Bolton Arena has been chosen as a regional player development centre by the LTA.
The regional player development centres will provide high level support to junior players with high potential aged between 10 – 14yrs. The regional centres will also provide an exceptional standard of coaching and structured sessions geared towards the athletic development necessary to progress to a national academy.
Scott Lloyd, LTA Chief Executive, said: ” With an emphasis on creating a seamless player pathway for talent development, this new Performance Strategy marks a step-change in the LTA’s approach to developing a pipeline of future tennis champions. It’s fantastic to see the new player pathway start to become a reality with the confirmation of the National Academies, supported by our new Regional Player Development Centres.”
USN Bolton Arena, Head Of Sport, Stuart Kay added: “We are delighted to be part of the Lawn Tennis Association Regional Player Development Centre performance pathway. This is in recognition of all the hard work the coaching team have put in over the past 10 years. We have built up an excellent reputation in the northwest for providing a fantastic pathway for all players.”
It is down to the hard-work and dedication of our team that we have been presented with this exciting new challenge. This is also a huge leap forward regarding our long-term development.
