How to update your LTA record

If you have completed a First Aid course and it is not showing in your Coach Secure Area, the LTA will need to see evidence of the certificate. You can scan a copy of the certificate or take a clear photograph and send this to your regional team or the British Tennis Services Team at

All this needs to be in place before you apply!

IF the LTA system does not show that you are ELIGIBLE we are unable to add you to the course.

Your application will therefore be rejected if you do not meet the course pre-requisites.
