Inclusive tennis is a key strand through the tennis coaching pathway and is embedded within the Level 1 and 2 qualifications. During the Level 3 qualification all coaches complete the Disability Awareness Course which raises awareness of the different types of disabilities and covers information on how to coach players with different abilities in an effective and appropriate way. The course provides practical tools to work successfully with the different types of disabilities, both separately and in integrated sessions. All coaches on the Disability Awareness course will receive a copy of the Disability Tennis Coaching Resource, a vital resource for any coaches who wish to deliver an inclusive tennis programme.
The course is also open to coaches who have not completed it previously. To search for upcoming Disability Awareness Courses please use the LTA’s Find a Course search.
For coaches looking to further develop their inclusive approach to tennis the Tennis Foundation run CPD (Continuing Professional Development) courses for each impairment (physically impaired, deaf & hearing impaired, blind & visually impaired and learning disability). Each CPD course will improve coaches’ knowledge, confidence and delivery of tennis for that specific impairment.
