Steven Martens, player director of the LTA, said: "Identifying talent from an early age onwards is crucial for the sport and we're confident that the 420 young players will demonstrate that we have a wealth of talent across the different age groups on the player pathway.

"Tennis is a sport where skills need to be developed step by step and we hope that each of these AEGON FutureStars will go on to reach their full potential through the support we provide."
