Do I need to join the Coach Accreditation scheme as a padel coach?
1 minute

If a padel coach is operating at a registered venue (either as a standalone padel venue, or one attached to a registered tennis venue), they should be actively working towards gaining their Accreditation.  At this time they are okay to continue coaching without Accreditation as long as they are considered safe to practice, which means they will need to have the following:

  • First aid training
  • Safeguarding training 

If the padel coach already has a padel qualification from another body, they can apply for their non-LTA padel qualification to be recognised, to enable them to become Accredited. To do this, please complete the form found on our LTA Qualifications page

The requirement for padel coaches to be Accredited will become enforceable from January 2024.  This means that if a padel coach is not Accredited from that time onwards, they will not be allowed to coach at a registered venue.

For more information on how to become Accredited, please see our Coach Accreditation page.
