I have been teaching tennis for the last 20 years or more , teaching kids up to adults from beginners to advance players, I also teach disabled players . It is very challenging to teach disabled people like people who have had a stroke or V.I or in wheelchairs. I also have a variety of qualifications from BTCA level3 ,PTR and RPT level Instructor/Pro .These are all my tennis coaching licences for able and disabled people.
Coach Accreditation is the LTA’s professional membership scheme for coaches. Being accredited ensures that a coach is qualified, insured and meets safe-to-practice standards, such as first aid and safeguarding training. An Accredited+ coach also commits to a minimum of 15 hours of professional development training each year.
Qualifications range from 1 to 5 and indicate the level of formally-assessed training a coach has completed. Coaches begin the LTA Qualification pathway at LTA Assistant (Level 1) and are able to train up to Master Coach (Level 5), the highest available LTA qualification. When choosing a coach we recommend taking into account qualifications, experience and ongoing CPD training, which can be seen in their 'Recently completed training courses' tab.
All coaches displayed on this tool are committed to delivering tennis to people of all backgrounds including disability, faith, gender identity, race, sex and sexual orientation.
