About Inspire2coach

Inspire2 coach run the coaching programme at BLTC, we operate at over 40 clubs nationwide offering world class coaching. All our coaches are fully qualified, accredited and DBS checked. We have developed a scheme that tackles the biggest problem we face today – children and their parents are leading much busier lives with many demands on their time, and tennis is competing with many more activities than ever before.

We allow players the opportunity to start new groups which we call ‘Focus Groups’ on a day and time to suit them. A new group can start with just 3 players and we only allow a maximum of 5 players per group. Our ethos is high quality coaching and better pupil to coach contact time which promotes high-quality service at all levels. We also have a core programme on a Saturday morning that offers great entry level coaching. Players pay inspire2coach by monthly direct-debit. The programme operates 45 weeks per year with other events being organised on some weeks. For further information please see our website.
