LTA - Disabled Access Guidelines
The rate at which disabled people are taking up sports has accelerated significantly over the past few years, particularly since the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
This means that increasingly there is a need to address inclusive design and accessibility in sports venues.
Tennis is a major sport in this respect and many facilities need to be enhanced to accommodate both the upsurge of interest in the sport and the demographic changes in the number of disabled who are participating or seeking to do so in the future.
The LTA asked us to help put together these guidelines which explain the importance of design and management of a tennis centre in terms of both meeting building regulations and satisfying obligations under the Equality Act 2010.
