Regional Player Development Centre

Dukes Meadows Tennis set in the beautiful Chiswick West London are proud to be a Regional Player Development Centre.

What is a Regional Player Development Centre (or RPDC)?

Regional Player Development Centres (RPDCs) are to provide high-quality tennis coaching environments which enable the best players to train regularly with each other. They will nurture the best young players to establish a robust all court-game and prepare to successfully begin playing some national and international competitions.

Regional Player Development Centres are designed to cater for players aged between 10-14 who are regional, national or international level with the aim of passing them into the National Academies.

At Dukes Meadows, our fantastic tennis coaching team strive to create an inspirational environment where players can enjoy a comprehensive curriculum to help develop their mindset and their on court game so they are prepared for anything on the tennis court!

We are also adopting a unique approach to off court planning and goal setting all of which is connected through Drop Box to ensure everything is communicated effectively.
