LTA Padel Coaching Qualification



The LTA is responsible for the provision of padel CPD and qualifications in the UK and we are delighted to offer our first CPD course - Introduction to Padel Coaching. The course is positioned as an entry level padel award and is our first training offer that we are making available since padel was integrated into the LTA. 

For more details on how to book onto a course please visit our course search page or contact your local Coach Development Centre 

Moving forward into 2022, the LTA will develop further role-based training offers, starting with a formally assessed coach qualification in padel, which will be positioned at Level 2 - it will be named the Padel Instructor qualification. These formally assessed courses will cover a much broader and deeper set of knowledge and skills compared to the one-day CPD course. 


The coaching pathway for padel is planned initially to have two levels - Instructor (L2) and Coach (L3) - while padel is still in its infancy in the UK. In time, the plan will be to introduce senior and master coach awards, aligning fully with tennis. 

If you are interested in being the first to know when our qualifications courses launch, please complete the expression of interest form at the bottom of the page. 

If you are already a padel coach with a non-LTA padel coaching certificate, you can become accredited under the LTA membership scheme.
