Tennis Ireland Coaches Education System

Qualifying as a tennis coach can lead to exciting full or part-time career opportunities at home or abroad.  We have in place a comprehensive, up to date and highly regarded coaches training system.

Our Coach Education and Technical Committee work closely with the International Tennis Federation, Tennis Coach Ireland and Coaching Ireland, to implement the highest possible standards of coaching in Irish tennis.

Our Courses

We offer a variety of coaching levels aligned with the Long Term Player Development Pathway.  Below is a document with a description of the new levels and Coach Ed structure which comes into effect from 2021, and what the participants are qualified to do when they successfully complete the courses.

Due to COVID-19 restrictions there are currently no courses confirmed for 2021. Tennis Ireland plan to run a Level 1 course in 2021 in line with Government guidelines once restrictions ease. If you would like to be added to the list of interested candidates, please e-mail your name and province to

Once Government guidelines permit the courses to commence and course dates are confirmed, all interested candidates will be notified and can apply for the course at that stage.
