From January 1st 2013, Tennis Ireland began to distinguish between two sets of coaches – `licensed coaches` and `unlicensed coaches`.
All individuals or organisations that employ or contract coaches (e.g. clubs, schools, individual players) are urged to employ only licensed coaches. This new development is supported by Tennis Coach Ireland (TCI). To review the criteria for the 2020 Coach Licensing Scheme please see below.
WHY A LICENSING SCHEME?
WHAT IS THE CRITERIA FOR 2020?
In order for a coach to be eligible for licensing in 2020, the coach must satisfy the following criteria:
N.B. it is important that when stakeholders request evidence of a coach’s license, that they also check the Coach’s Garda Vetting disclosure and Safeguarding Cert to ensure they do not expire during the year in question.
If either tasks expire, it is the responsibility of the Stakeholder taking on the coach to work with children and young people and the Coach to ensure both Garda Vetting and Safeguarding are kept up to date.
WHAT IS MY LICENSE FEE?
There is a fee of €20 for your license, payable to Tennis Ireland. Payment can be made via card over the phone, cheque, postal order or bank draft.
HOW DO I APPLY FOR MY LICENSE?

You will be contacted about payment once all your documents have been validated by Tennis Ireland.
FOR HOW LONG DOES A LICENSE REMAIN VALID?
The license scheme runs on an annual basis, and so the license is valid from January 1st to December 31st of the year in question.
