PPS was started in November 2016, by a group of people ambitious and driven to get the best out of young sportspeople. It started by supporting performance tennis players who had potential but lacked support and funding. This was before launching a growth strategy in September 2018 to build a structure of programmes and support across three target areas (community progression, sport advancement, career path) and a variety of sports.

Performance Plus Sport UK is governed by The Tim Henman Foundation and complies with their policies. All original PPS Trustees remain involved and the PPS Director is the CEO of The Tim Henman Foundation.
