Funding to support diversity in tennis coaching across Wales
• 1 MINUTE READ
Tennis Wales is launching a bursary scheme to increase the diversity of tennis coaches across Wales this month.
The bursaries are available right across Wales, aiming to grow the number of people qualified to coach the sport from 2021 onwards, in line with organisations’ strategy for tennis opened up across Wales.
Vicki Broadbent, Coaching and Volunteering Manager at Tennis Wales said
“Tennis coaches are in high demand across Wales and there has never been a better time to think about a career in coaching. Our strategy ‘tennis opened up’ means that we want our qualifications to be welcoming and accessible to everyone. We are committed to inclusion and having a diverse workforce, allowing anybody to take their first steps on the LTA's coaching qualifications pathway. Our coach bursary scheme is one way we’re supporting this”
Across Wales, there are more than 150 accredited and qualified tennis coaches working in the sport. Full details on the coach bursary scheme can be found online, with applications now open.
