Ryan Peniston’s success at this year’s cinch championships at The Queen’s Club and a rising tide of British winners at the summer grass track events have highlighted positive momentum in the sport in the UK, said LTA CEO Scott Lloyd.

Peniston, who benefits from LTA’s NTC Access program that assists players in 100-200 in singles and 31-100 in doubles by providing free access to courts on all three surfaces, coaching, trainers and the LTA’s tournament bonus schedule , beat world number five Casper Ruud 7-6 7-6 Tuesday at The Queen’s Club and backed it up by reaching the quarterfinals after beating Francisco Cerundolo on Thursday.

And Lloyd called the role of the LTA’s improved Tennis Performance Competitions calendar an important part of developing British players like Peniston by enabling them to play more high-quality matches.

The LTA’s Performance Competitions calendar, with the number of events increasing from seven men’s events and eight women’s events in 2019 to 16 for both men and women in 2022. This will complement the already existing playing opportunities on the lawn.

It has given UK players more competitive opportunities on home soil, reducing travel costs and helping a large number of players improve their rankings.

“I saw Ryan play at our Challenger event in Ilkley in 2019 and he was around 360 of the world at the time,” Lloyd said in an interview with the BBC.

“He’s coming through now, he’s in the top 150 and so he’s made real progress. He’s a very talented player and it’s great to see him win some matches.

“The performance calendar here in Britain, the domestic calendar, gives British players in different age groups playing opportunities all year round.

“In that regard, we have doubled our investment for 2022 and players are benefiting from it.

“They win matches, they win tournaments and that helps their ranking trajectory.”

Sonay Kartal is a player who has reaped the benefits of additional tournaments in the UK, with four title wins in ITF W25 events in England this year helping her lift her position from the low 800s at the start of 2022 to a position where she is now close to breaking through the top 250 in the WTA rankings.

“Not only do the extra tournaments in the UK help them count their matches, but also gain match experience on the track, learn to win and sometimes lose too,” Lloyd added.

“That all helps with their experience and so far it’s been very well received by the players and they’re benefiting from it so far, so good in that regard.”

Peniston is one of seven British players in the Queen’s Club draw, and Lloyd believes it is an exciting time for British tennis.

He said: “It was a great tournament, the weather helped, the quality of the game was there and it was so nice to see so many British players competing this week as well.

“We now have a very good harvest, not only among the men, but also among the women.

“Since 1984 we’ve had more men and women in the top 200 together, it’s looking good.”
