Qualifications, Opportunites and Support
Already a qualified and accredited LTA coach? Great news! We provide coaching opportunities across our student, b:active and junior programmes as well as the chance to volunteer whilst gaining your qualifications with us. And if we can't help you, we will find someone that can! Through our various links with local clubs and partners across Bristol.
Not going down the coaching route? Then how about becoming a referee or competition organsier. We provide opportunities for qualified students to earn money by running junior and student competition. We can also help you get qualified.
We are also running a L1 course coming up early next year (details below). To sign up or if you are seeking additional support / help please get in touch with our University Tennis Coordinator Ollie Bendall by hitting the 'find out more' button at the bottom of this page.
