As part of our charitable social enterprise status, we aim to make tennis accessible and affordable to all sections of the community that we work within. We believe that sport and fitness should be available to everyone and as such, are looking for inspirational Tennis Coaches to bring tennis to more people than ever before.
You'll live and breathe tennis. Your passion for the sport will be infectious. Although you'll enjoy the performance aspect of coaching, what you really love is getting more and more people to play - especially a 'non-traditional' tennis audience. Our facilities, including dedicated tennis centres as well as those housed in leisure centres, span London (North, South, East and West London) and are in some of the most diverse and sometimes deprived areas in the country, so it goes without saying that you'll be able to inspire, motivate and encourage tennis participation amongst a variety of people. And with our strong relationship with the Lawn Tennis Association and infrastructure to develop tennis all over London, you'll be able to develop a great career in tennis with us too.
An experienced coach, you'll be qualified to Level 1 or 2, or be a community-driven Level 3 coach. You'll need to be driven, passionate about what you do and able to work independently but with the support and guidance of our Tennis Managers. You'll benefit from the support that a large organisation such as GLL can bring, in particular from our Tennis and Sports Unit teams. Ideas and innovation are what we thrive on, so you'll be encouraged to think outside of the box and also to get involved in coaching a range of tennis sessions including toddler tennis, Mini Tennis and other variations of social tennis.
In return, we offer a range of benefits that you'd expect from the UK's largest leisure provider: •Pension schemes •Discounted membership at our leisure centres •Career pathways •Ongoing training and development to help you to be the best
