Female Tennis Player Indoors

Following the announcement earlier this year of a new funding agreement with British tennis to grow tennis in Scotland, Tennis Scotland, the national governing body for tennis, is recruiting three key positions to add to its world-class coaching team based at the University of Stirling.

This is an exciting time to be working in Scottish tennis as the sport emerges from the Covid-19 pandemic, with the governing body set to recruit a number of new positions via significant growth ambitions. Plans to deliver 10 new indoor tennis facilities across Scotland are under way, and the new GB National Tennis Academy, led by head coach Leo Azevedo, is now in its second year.

Tennis Scotland is passionate about recognising the variety of skills people bring, working to turn good performance into great performance. New recruits will be key to the continued momentum of the organisation, which has delivered continued year-on-year growth across a number of areas including membership, competitions, performance and disability tennis.

As it enters a new and exciting phase, and with more opportunities coming in the near future, Tennis Scotland is seeking initially to recruit a Head Coach to lead the Regional Player Development Centre (10-14 years old) and help grow a world-class player development pathway for the most talented young players in the country.

Additionally, Tennis Scotland is seeking to add two Performance Coaches to its high-performance team at the GB National Tennis Academy and support the development of the best British players aged between 13-18 years old.
