Leaders Courses

What is a Tennis Leader?


A Tennis Leader is someone that is able to support the coach and/or committee with the day
to day running of the tennis venue and tennis programme. Tennis Leaders is an exciting
programme which can help young people develop their employability and life skills, and for
those that want it, their first step on the ladder to a career in sport. These Leaders courses are hosted at Wycombe Abbey School, HP11 1PE
