Taking tennis coaching lessons is not only a great way to develop your game, it also helps you to meet new people.
Start off with group coaching sessions. This is a good way to find out if you like the coach and if their teaching style suits you before you have individual lessons.
Some of the things you may want to consider when looking for a coach are whether they are accredited with the LTA and what type of qualification they hold. Check out the panels on the right for more information.
Most coaches are employed by a club or other tennis facility, so searching for a local place to play is a good place to start for both adults and kids.
Find a local place to play by using our search facility, select the club you want more information on and then select 'Coaches' to see who works at the club and their qualifications.
If the coach has not posted their contact details, speak to the club and ask them to put you in touch with the coach.
Many clubs allow their coaches to provide lessons to non-members, possibly with a court hire charge or guest player fee included.
Coaching sessions are also a good way to find out more about a local club that you are considering joining.
You can use our Find a Coach facility to find coaches working in your local area. Simply type in your postcode to bring up a list and you can then click on the coach’s name to view their profile.
This will tell you, at the very least, what qualification they have, whether they are accredited with the LTA. The date of their last CRB check is also available in most cases and depending on how much information the coach wishes to display you may also find contact details and information about what areas of tennis they specialise in.
If your child plays tennis at a school which doesn’t have a coach coming in to teach the kids, check to see if the school has a link with a local club and you can then get in touch with that club’s head coach.
If they are having tennis lessons at school, and they want to get involved in the sport outside of school, speak to the coach to see if he/she runs coaching sessions at a local club or park.
