This is an exciting opportunity to be part of both an established, award winning academy programme and part of a team building a new site and club from the very start and is an ideal position for a driven coach looking to further their coaching career and lead a new challenge. Part time to start, this role could become full time very quickly. Initially a minimum of 18 hours of coaching in squads and schools, along with individual lessons on top (several hours a week as an additional) can be provided.


The programme hours include mornings, afternoons, evenings and Saturdays as well as the occasional Sunday and support hosting matches. Within the role, there is scope to design and deliver your own coaching programme on behalf of the academy, under the supervision of the Academy Director, and be part a team creating a tennis club at one of our new sites.


There is opportunity for the right candidate to grow hours very quickly through individual lessons, developing squads, running initiatives and tournaments/matchplay. With the right vision and ethos, this role could lead to Head Coach across several sites quickly.

You will be positive and patient to students, communicate effectively in a motivational way, and be keen to work with both juniors and adults.

You will be able to work on your own and as part of a team, be reliable and committed to coaching regular sessions. You will hold valid DBS, First Aid and Safeguarding certificates and your own public liability insurance. We are willing to support and fund the right coach through their Level 3 qualification if required.

We aim to motivate students and encourage a passion for tennis and sport, delivering exciting active tennis and multisport coaching sessions in a positive environment, welcoming students of all ages and abilities.
