Cambridge LTC Performance Pathway
CLTC is determined to give all players the opportunity to fulfill their potential and those youngsters with ability are given the chance to access indoor facilities at Hills Road.
The Club runs a programme for the aspiring red players aged 6 to 8 years to have two indoor sessions a week with sponge balls at Hills Road under the supervision of the Head Coach. These players have shown commitment to their tennis and also a desire to compete on a regular basis. As these players progress then they may move into the Performance programme at Hills Road and train 3 to 5 times a week and have a good fitness and competitive programme.
CLTC has linked with Hills Road and recently been approved by the LTA as a Local Player Development Centre. The Club currently has 8 players in the LPDC with the aim of increasing this year on year.
The players can still access any sessions they wish at the Club and play for the Club in the extensive list of team events organised by the Club – this year the girls 12 and under team reached the LTA team tennis National Finals.
The Club has invitation classes for those players wanting to play more than once a week and also a small Performance programme for those committing to at least two sessions a week and individual lessons and wanting to compete regularly. The aim is to expand this as we get more floodlights.
The Club has an excellent tournament programme with team events for red, orange and green, Winter County Tour events, and three grade three week long events and enters numerous teams in the LTA Team Tennis.
Many of the older Performance children also train at Hills Road but still have CLTC as their Club and play Team Tennis and league tennis for the Club – most aspiring players will at some stage come back to the Club and we hope we have built such a good rapport with them that CLTC will still remain their home!
