The LTA has a lot of different areas of tennis to deal with and since Roger Draper took over as chief executive it seems that it is getting several of them right.
The world's best coaches now work at the National Tennis Centre and the likes of Laura Robson winning Wimbledon shows that if a player has talent then they should progress through the system to an elite end which has all the resources it needs.
But is the pool from which all players start still shrinking? I only ask because the LTA has now decided that parks and community tennis is now be the responsibility of the Tennis Foundation.
A change in tack perhaps, but Tony Hawks who has campaigned for free tennis courts for years, thinks the move is a bad one. He claims that the LTA and the Tennis Foundation have been big on promising things but have delivered little.
Sue Mappin at the Tennis Foundation says all 10,000 public courts will be free in three years but Hawks says he had heard assurances like this before from Draper. He does not think the LTA head is that bothered about grass roots and has devolved all responsibility to what effectively is another organisation.
The Tennis Foundation now has a massive remit to deliver tennis at grass roots level through schools, clubs, parks and sports centres. It is a big ask for what was formerly a charity and it looks as though the LTA is happy to let them get on with it.
But can they, and the LTA moreover, deliver this sort of aim? Can they be trusted to get as many people playing as possible by making tennis a game for anyone, regardless of money?
Community tennis is a problem the LTA admits it has ignored for 20 years. Do you think they can finally sort it out?
