Choosing the right tennis coach can be complicated.
You decide it’s time to bring in an expert to help you reach your tennis goals. But how do you choose the perfect coach for you when there are so many options out there?
It’s tough – we get it. And we are here to help. Here are three things to consider:
1) Determine your tennis goals
“Setting goals is the first step in turning the invisible into the visible.” – Robbins
Before knowing which coach to choose, it is important to determine what you’d like the coach to help you accomplish!
The correct coach might be different for a total beginner looking to have fun and pick up the basics versus an experienced adult trying to move up the rankings.
2) Consider your circumstances
“A lack of clarity could put the brakes on any journey to success.” – Maraboli
Now that you know your goals, there are some other things to consider.
Do you want a coach to come to you? Do you prefer a male or female coach? When would you like to have the lessons? What is your budget?
3) Do your homework
“Destiny is not a matter of chance, it is a matter of choice.” – Bryan
Just like tennis players, coaches have strengths, too. And you can choose!
Some coaches are experts at laying the foundations for beginners. Some are excellent at preparing high-school players for college tennis. Others work only with adults. It is important to browse the options, and make sure the coach’s experience, style, schedule and rate align with your goals and circumstances.
Lastly, it is very important to make sure all of the potential coaches are safe and professional. Don’t hesitate to check backgrounds or ask about certifications.
