GLL makes community services and spaces better for everyone. And it’s about more than just money. Our people invest time, energy and effort into helping and improving communities through the services we offer - and with great results. Through “Better” we provide leisure centres, children’s services, spas, libraries, extreme spots, event spaces and standalone gyms. 

GLL is looking for Tennis Coaches based at Charlton Lido and Lifestyle club in Charlton, South East London.

Tennis is one of our key sports and an area of focus for us at GLL. As part of our charitable social enterprise status, we aim to make tennis accessible and affordable to all sections of the community that we work within. We believe that sport and fitness should be available to everyone and as such, are looking for inspirational Tennis to bring tennis to more people than ever before.

You will live and breathe tennis. Your passion for the sport will be infectious. Although you will enjoy the performance aspect of coaching, what you really love is getting more and more people to play especially a non-traditional tennis audience. Our facilities, including dedicated tennis centres as well as those housed in leisure centres, span London (North, South, East and West London) and are in some of the most diverse and sometimes deprived areas in the country, so it goes without saying that you will be able to inspire, motivate and encourage tennis participation amongst a variety of people. And with our strong relationship with the Lawn Tennis Association and infrastructure to develop tennis all over London, you will be able to develop a great career in tennis with us too.

An experienced coach, you will be qualified to Level 1 or 2, or be a community driven Level 3 coach. You will need to be driven, passionate about what you do and able to work independently but with the support and guidance of our Tennis Managers. You will benefit from the support that a large organisation such as GLL can bring, in particular from our Tennis and Sports Unit teams. Ideas and innovation are what we thrive on, so you will be encouraged to think outside of the box and also to get involved in coaching a range of tennis sessions including toddler tennis, Mini Tennis and other variations of social tennis.

In return, we offer:

  • Pension
  • Discounted membership at our leisure centres
  • Career pathways
  • Ongoing training and development

If you feel that your passion and experience can get more people playing tennis, apply now.

All pay rates are subject to skills, experience, qualifications, age and location.
