Tennis for Kids 2018 - Calling all coaches!

Tennis for kids 2018

Do you want to be a part of Tennis for Kids?

Tennis for Kids offers children, aged 4-11, the opportunity to fall in love with tennis, by taking part in a 6 week introductory course delivered by specially trained and enthusiastic coaches, across the UK.

Tennis for Kids was once again a huge success in 2017, with the target of 20,000 children booking onto a course being achieved in less than 2 weeks of launch.

We are now looking for Britain’s best and most passionate coaches (minimum Level 2) to come and be part of the team from 2018 and deliver thousands of Tennis for Kids courses to children new to tennis.

In addition to the course fee, you will receive an amazing support package, including first class training, branded team kit and a bag of Mini Red tennis balls to use throughout your sessions. Racket and ball sets, and personalised t-shirts, will also be sent directly to the children.
