Andy Murray was voted the 2013 BBC ‘Sports Personality of the Year’ – a fitting award for the first Briton in 77 years to win the Wimbledon men’s singles title, following his victory over Novak Djokovic in the summer.
Despite Murray’s success, these are not the best of times for the Lawn Tennis Association (LTA). Sport England, the body which issues funding for grassroots sport, announced in December 2013, that it was withholding three years’ funding from the LTA, amounting to £10m. Whilst a total of 46 sports would participate in a financial package worth £493m, the LTA was left red-faced to answer accusations from Sport England’s chief executive Jennie Price, of being ‘out of touch,’ and with a need to provide a ‘stronger plan’. There had been a 10% reduction over the five year period (2008-13), in the total number of people playing tennis once a week for 30 minutes or longer and this, despite the LTA having received four years of government support to boost numbers. In 2013, 445,100 people played the game just once a week.
For British fans, it could well be another 77 year wait…
