As a tennis coach you will work as part of the team delivering group lessons, squad sessions and individual lessons to a wide range of players. The Academy programme offers sessions for all ages and abilities, all year round. You will have the opportunity to lead some sessions whilst also working alongside other coaches with plenty of scope to develop your own coaching skills. We are looking for a team player who is passionate about tennis and committed to making a difference in every session they deliver.
The Academy operates out of two main venues: Waverley LTS&SC (4 outdoor all-weather courts with floodlights) and Grange Dyvours LTC (4 outdoor all-weather courts with floodlights and 4 outdoor grass courts).
We are also linked to the community through the Active School Programme, Fettes College and some other local nurseries/schools and programmes (Duke of Edinburgh and Junior Award Scheme for Schools).
The Academy started in September 2016 and has now over 225 regular players. Our coaching team has over 30 years of experience. We are young, very enthusiastic and want to make a big difference. It is our intention to keep growing both in quantity and quality.
An ideal candidate is someone who is passionate about tennis in general and coaching in particular, and who has a drive to improve the ability of any type of player. They must be reliable and punctual with good organisation and communication skills. They must be flexible and willing to do that little bit extra in order to maintain the excellent reputation of the Academy.
In return we can guarantee you a minimum of 20 hours coaching per week all year round with the potential for this to increase with our customised coaching programme (private and semi-private lessons, cardio tennis, team practice, birthday parties, etc.) and additional work (for example running events or organising competitions). On top of all this we have exclusive benefits which will be discussed with the candidate.
Ability to drive and access to a car would be desirable.
