LTA Nottingham RPDC Philosophy

‘Excellence through endeavor’

We have created a culture within the RPDC Nottingham that embraces the ‘excellence through endeavor’ philosophy. We believe that the most significant learning occurs in situations that are both meaningful and realistic. 

We look for the following characteristics in our players and staff as core values for future success and follow these core principles in our day-to-day work environment.

  • Ambitious  
  • Unconditional effort
  • Competitive 
  • Non-negotiable commitment  
  • Adaptive 
  • Love of the game

With the level of support provided in training and competition from our expert coaching team, proven track records and the extensive facilities available to us, we are confident we can achieve the levels required for LTA National Academy selection and national/international tournament success.

What is an RPDC?

‘Regional performance development centre’

To provide inspiring and transformational development environments for the next generation of pro players.

Through the delivery of world class coaching and support, RPDC’s will increase the number of nationally relevant players aged 10+ who can transition effectively to the International Junior Stage of the LTA Player Pathway by the age of 14.

Who are they for and how are players selected?

RPDCs are for players aged 10 to 14 (exceptional younger players may be considered on a case-by-case basis in agreement with the LTA).

The RPDC Player Selection Policy is available here.
