Inclusive Tennis opportunities in Avon - Open Court programmes

Avon Tennis’ aim is to have all clubs in the area being able to offer inclusive tennis.  This depends on facilities, availability of LTA Accredited coaches, volunteers, equipment and training opportunities.

Rachel Harland, our Open Court Lead, is working in partnership with the LTA and other disability organisations, for the delivery of various programmes across Avon and can be contacted by email: opencourt@avontennis.org.uk

At present, there are a range of activities that focus on improving mental and physical health, through our inclusion and disability initiatives. These include:

  • Deaf Tennis
  • Learning Disabilities
  • Visually Impaired Tennis
  • Walking Tennis
  • Wheelchair Tennis
