Tennis NSW hosted 15 Illawarra coaches at a Foundation Coaching Course at Wollongong Tennis Club on March 3. Tennis NSW provided a Foundation Course at Beaton Park Tennis Club, to establish a coaching platform for all participants.
The majority of the participants were young players looking to develop skills in coaching, or who are currently assisting a qualified tennis coach at a local club.
Whilst the majority of the course was conducted on-court, participants also gained an awareness of their responsibilities as a coach to ensure a safe environment for all tennis participants.
