Sports Coaching Courses

Qualifying as a sports coach is an excellent way to either start a career in sports, earn a second income or provide a valuable volunteer service to your local community. Coaching sport can be very rewarding and it provides an opportunity to combine a passion and a career together.  There are generic sports coaching and activity leadership qualifications out there but if you want to work in a specific sport you need to have the relevant qualification recognised by the national governing body of that sport.


WimX Tennis Coaching Courses

WimX can offer a variety of sports coaching qualifications for groups but we do specialise in tennis coaching. Our level 1 and level 2 tennis coaching qualifications are delivered by a top coach who has experience of all coaching and playing levels. We also offer a unique “experience” option to the candidates which gives them the chance to gain some some credible work experience and a reference for their CV. There is also a chance to earn coaching work with our many partners who deliver tennis programs.

We currently offer the following qualifications as part of our regular calendar but please feel free to contact us if  you would like to organise a specific coaching course for your group or club
