New Sport England data shows big rise in tennis participation

Sport England have revealed a big rise in tennis participation in the country, with the highest figure recorded since their Active Lives survey began in 2015/16. 

Stats show a 43 per cent increase in tennis participation in England since 2020/21, with 915,000 adults recorded as having played tennis regularly between November 2021 and November 2022.  

Sport England measure the number of people who have played a sport twice in the past 28 days (averaged across a year from November to November).
Earlier this year the LTA announced similar significant rises in its own participation data, with figures for frequent play at their highest ever level.
