We run the LTA Tennis Leaders course annually.
This LTA-approved course is designed to teach juniors aged 13+ how to support a coach with the day-to-day running of tennis activities and sessions.
The qualification develops and acknowledges a young person's leadership skills which can help them when applying for higher education or first-time jobs.
They can also start paid work at LTA venues supporting tournaments,
tennis camps and group coaching sessions
