Become A Tennis Coach

Have you thought of becoming a tennis coach? If you love and enjoy playing tennis, it’s a fun and rewarding way to get involved. St Ann’s Tennis encourages new coaches – we can usually find assistant coaching work to help players develop their skills and acquire the necessary qualifications.

An LTA level 1 Coaching Assistant course is the first step. Level 2 is more advanced, allowing you to run courses under the supervision of a Head Coach, and Level 3 allows you to run private lessons and courses.

See below details of forthcoming LTA coaching courses in Sussex. Scroll down for details of possible grants for young people.

Active Sussex have also announced a grants scheme to support young coaches to access training that I thought may be of interest, details below:

CYP Workforce Investment Fund –   Small Grants

•       Grants are available for amounts between £250 and £500.

•       The funding can be used towards obtaining qualifications or accessing training that can help encourage and support inactive CYP to be active

•       This can be for a coach, instructor, volunteer or participant.

•       Funding should be used to develop and train recipients to address inactivity in the CYP Investment Fund priority CYP groups. 

•       In line with a ‘person like me’ approach to workforce development, Active Sussex are particularly interested in providing grants to young coaches/CYP from target audiences.

•       Must complete the Expression of Interest Form to apply.
