Could you be the future of tennis in Shropshire?

Tennis Shropshire is offering two exciting volunteer programmes for teenagers this year.  Both programmes will help you gain a better understanding of what's involved in coaching as well as how events and tournaments are run - and of course there's plenty of fun and friendship involved too! 

Tennis Cadet

The County is offering the chance for keen 12 and 14 year olds the chance to learn skills which will help them assist coaches in delivering tennis sessions. The programme will involve two workshops led by inspire2coach staff at the Shrewsbury Club. This is a great first step before the Tennis Futures programme. 

To book your place contact Josh Price at [email protected] Places are limited please book now!

Workshop 1 – 2 hours April 7th 12-3pm

Workshop 2 - 2 hours May 26th 12.3pm
