Tennis Scotland in partnership with the LTA operates a number of different facility funding streams for clubs, educational institutions and communities.


Facility Funding
The Tennis Scotland Funding guide outlines the various grant and loan funds available from Tennis Scotland and the LTA. It has been developed to help deliver sustainable facility developments that will increase available playing hours and provide the type of experience that will help retain and attract players, members, coaches and volunteers.

Tennis Scotland Community Fund
A fund that seeks to provide clubs and community projects with support to build a network of accessible facilities which show the strongest potential for growth. Funding will be a mix of grant and loan and there are specific requirements around access to the community.

Funding will be administered in 2 funding rounds per annum and an Expression of Interest must be submitted prior to an application. Venues will also be required to use Clubspark venue management software or alternative booking system and install a gate access system. 

The 2017 funding rounds are outlined below;

Funding Round Deadline for Applications Decisions Announced
Round 1 1st April 12th May
Round 2 1st September 13th October

Funding round dates for 2018 will be released following funding round 2.

Indoor Funding
Tennis Scotland in partnership with sportscotland and the LTA announced an indoor funding package of £15 million. Plans, guidance and processes for this funding are currently being developed and we will provide an update as soon as we can.
