LTA - Open Court Programme
The Open Court Programme is a national scheme that actively promotes and delivers opportunities for disabled people to get involved in tennis. Partnered with and jointly funded by Sport England, the programme provides disability specific sessions – including learning disability tennis, wheelchair tennis, visually impaired tennis and deaf tennis. We're also expanding our programme into other long-term health conditions such as mental health and dementia.
We work with tennis venues all across the country, putting on a range of activities to improve mental and physical health through increasing opportunities to play, socialise and compete with similar people in the sport.

Volunteers have always played a vital part in the sport and physical activity sector. Without them, most activity simply wouldn't happen. Approximately 150,000 Somerset residents volunteer at least once a month, many these in sport and physical activity.
If you are interested in volunteering at any of our inclusive or disability sessions, please contact Carly Ridgwell.
If you need support in recruiting volunteers for your club, please contact Carly Ridgwell.
