COVID-19 update (25/2/2021):
The latest advice from the LTA and the government has provided hope that we can restart Coach Education courses indoors and outdoors from April.
If you have started a Coach Education course with inspire2coach, or have booked a course which was due to start during the lockdown period, we will be rescheduling the course to resume training.
YOU DO NOT NEED TO DO ANYTHING. We will contact you when we have more information about the resumption and rescheduling of your course.
In the meantime, we invite you to take advantage of our continued offer of free membership of Tennis 24/7, our resource site for tennis coaches, parents and players.
LTA Level 3 (Coach Qualification)

*A note on the cost of the level 3 in 2021.
There has been a significant increase in the cost to register for a level 3 course in 2021. This is because the real cost of the Level 3 is closer to £1500 per person once the cost of resources, courts and course tutors in factored in. Government funding that had previously been available to offset the cost of the courses and enable them to be offered at a lower price to coaches has now stopped. Without the price increases courses would run at a loss and would no longer be sustainable.
From 2021, LTA coaching qualifications are being run by a new network of LTA accredited Coach Development Centres such as inspire2coach. This is a different delivery model to before with new processes and costs associated with it. However, it will enable courses to run at scale across the country and will therefore cut travel time and distances for coaches attending the courses.
