Tennis Wales has appointed Simon Johnson as its new chief executive.

Johnson joins the national governing body having spent seven years at the Lawn Tennis Association (LTA) – a stint which included three years as head of the south west of England.

In his new role, Johnson will oversee work to create a new vision and strategy to grow participation and revenue into the sport in Wales – in partnership with both the LTA and Sport England.

"We have an incredible opportunity to grow tennis in Wales," Johnson said.

"Our vision will be to work with all our partners across Wales to truly open tennis up to new people, making sure that everyone feels tennis is relevant, welcoming, enjoyable and above all, fun to play.

"This is very much the start of an exciting journey and I’m looking forward to working across Wales well into the future".

Barry Cawte, Tennis Wales chair, added: "Simon was selected after a very competitive process, as he has all the skills, track record and experience required to be a success in this position.

"We are very excited about the future as Simon takes us into a new era using his innovative and dynamic leadership style to help us open up tennis."
