LTA logo Affiliation


Grimsby Tennis Centre is affiliated to the Lawn Tennis Association (Affiliation Number LIN018).


For each member, adult and junior, GTC pays to the LTA an Affiliation Fee which is incorporated into the Membership Fee and no additional fees are payable by Members to the LTA. However, GTC Members may join British Tennis to support our national game.
There is a current promotion by the LTA to encourage participation in the sport which entitles all members of an Affiliated Club to free membership of British Tennis - so click on the link and join now!

Affiliation to the LTA brings GTC all kinds of advantages, from advice on legal issues and access to funding, to the chance for members to compete in national tournaments and get tickets to Wimbledon.

The LTA is organised on both a local and national basis, and each year GTC renews our affiliation to Lincolnshire County. For some services you should contact the LTA head office, but in most cases the Lincolnshire County office is the first stop for information and support.

With the help of the LTA, we developed our facilities, resources and coaching to support more and better players. We put together a business and tennis development plan which enabled us to apply for grants and loans.

Other benefits of affiliation include visits from LTA technical services consultants, who helped us provide full specifications of what we needed to build the new courts and other facilities at our club.

For day to day administration, the LTA BASeLINE service offers advice on issues such as tax and legal matters, and affiliation includes free liability insurance cover.

The LTA also manages training resources and courses for club coaches.

Affiliated club members are eligible to compete in County competitions and national tournaments, such as the AEGON Team Tennis and Junior AEGON Team Tennis. For GTC information see our AEGON Team Tennis pages.

The LTA official newsletter, British Tennis magazine, is sent to all affiliated clubs, and last - but not least - we have an allocation of tickets to Wimbledon, based upon the number of members we have and we enjoy offers on tickets for other major competitions, such as the Davis Cup.

Grimsby Tennis Centre fully supports the Lawn Tennis Association and has taken part in all of the many initiatives emanating from LTA Headquarters including:-

                • Green Shield programme
                • Star Club Programme
