A wonderful coaching opportunity with us at Everyball Tennis, Halton UK

Everyball Tennis, Halton Tennis Centre (Halton UK) – Coaching position

Halton Tennis Centre is one of the most dynamic and forward thinking tennis organisations in Great Britain with LTA president Cathie Sabin recently commenting:

'My second visit to Halton was just as inspirational as my first. Your vision and leadership is keeping the club one step ahead....and it's so good to see all your team buying into all the new initiatives.'

Everyball Tennis (EBT) is our coaching brand and provider, serving not only Halton but Tring and Wendover tennis clubs, and a number of outreach centres and schools in Buckinghamshire and Hertfordshire.

A snapshot over the last 15 years shows that EBT/Halton UK has produced exactly 100 junior County champions across 7 counties (10&U-18&U); we have consistently been within the top 3 centres in the East Region for RCJ's, won a number of Team Aegon Junior National titles as well as both our senior teams reaching the Team Aegon finals in 2016, and we have led the way in inclusive tennis in our region. During this time we have also had 3 players compete at Junior Wimbledon whilst running a vibrant traditional tennis club for people of all ages and ability. A recent comment by a parent summs it up: 'It's a true tennis club.'

We are seeking to appoint a further coach to our team and you could just be the that person with the special combination of attitude, energy, and competency that we're looking for (and very much in that order!).

The successful candidate(s) will:

  • Be a Level 3 or 4 self-employed LTA licensed coach (or equivalent)

  • Demonstrate an ability to be an 'all-rounder', equally comfortable and willing to work in both club development (mini tennis, junior and adults) and junior performance. The coach will support our promise to customers to 'educate, motivate and inspire through the power of sport to help you become the best you can be' and will have a coaching philosophy that is compatible with our 'everyball way'

  • Understand the nature of the tennis coaching industry in that our customers leisure time is our work time.

  • Show enthusiasm, professionalism, a desire to learn and be part of a dynamic, supportive coaching TEAM – this includes understanding the interdependent relationship between the coach's individual business and the Everyball coaching/club programme

  • Have a full drivers license

Through this role there is a significant opportunity to build a strong individual coaching business through teaming up with a leadership process designed to support your growth and development with the parallel goal of continuing to build on our reputation for excellence, innovation and service.

Start date: February – May 2017 depending on current contract obligations of successful candidate
