Wanted - tennis coach
Opportunity for Enthusiastic and Dynamic Tennis Coach at Cloughey & District Tennis Club
We are a small, friendly and progressive tennis club on the Ards Peninsula, with 3 brand new floodlit ‘outdoor carpet’ courts. The new surface is ‘slow’ and ideal for coaching and developing performance players.
We are looking for a coach to take over our junior and senior coaching classes which currently take place on Monday (adult intermediate/advanced group + junior performance group) and Friday (junior Red, Orange, Green and Yellow ball groups). Scope for additional junior club play and tournaments on Saturday mornings. Also opportunity to coach after-schools groups at up to 7 local primary schools and for additional private coaching subject to court availability.
The Club has a full range of coaching equipment including mini-nets, red, orange, green balls, mini-rackets, and a ball-machine. We also have several coaching assistants and trainees within the club who are available to assist.
We are looking for an enthusiastic and dynamic coach to take charge of our tennis programme, increase participation and membership and to help our players to achieve competitive success. We currently have successful girls and boys teams at U14 level, and several players ranked at regional and national level.
This will initially be a part-time post with core commitments on the 2 main coaching evenings and opportunities for additional earnings through junior holiday courses and tournaments plus after-schools work and private coaching at other times.
Cloughey is a coastal village on the Ards Peninsula and is approx 15 miles (25 mins drive time) from Newtownards. The tennis courts and pavilion occupy a picturesque site nestling in the sand hills adjoining Cloughey Beach.
