Tennis Leader Awards

Leaders Courses @ Stony Stratford Tennis Club

Tennis Leaders is aimed at 13 years plus and the content is suitable for older juniors just starting out on the tennis career pathway through to adult volunteers looking to support their local coach, referee or club official.

If you have completed the Sports Leaders UK Level 1 Coaching Assistant Award you will still find the first module of great benefit, as it will provide an overview of the sport and help you to put your leadership skills into practice within a tennis environment.

Tennis Works will be able to offer all leaders the opportunity to develop their skills through practical experience and highly experienced tutors. All modules will be delivered at Stony Stratford Tennis Club.
