Charlotte Davies’ latest blog for LawInSport on claim against the LTA

With Wimbledon just around the corner, UK tennis will soon be in the world spotlight again. In the search for the next Andy Murray, difficult decisions have to be made about which aspiring players should receive the benefit of funding and support.

Such benefits are vital for any aspiring young tennis player in their quest to reach the top of the rankings. It is perhaps no surprise therefore, that decisions regarding the provision of funding, opportunities and publicity for junior players have given rise to legal challenges by individuals who feel they are not being treated fairly.

A recent example of such a challenge is provided by the case Isaac Stoute is bringing against the Lawn Tennis Association (LTA), in which he alleges that the LTA has discriminated against him on racial grounds. This blog looks at Stoute’s case and an earlier case, and considers the types of legal issues that may arise in respect of the provision of funding and support.
