Help us serve something special for our members
Whatever their age, and whatever it is our members are looking to achieve on the court, be it tennis, squash or badminton, our Racquets team's goal is to get them to where they want to be. Building relationships with kids, parents and the rest of the Racquets team. Helping others develop skills they'll have for life and maybe enjoy as a family. Doing a job where every day's different in terms of tasks and challenges. The list of positives is a comprehensive one. And, you'll be working in a world class Racquets facility too. Yes, the hours can be unsociable sometimes, in order to fit in with our members' lifestyles, but we think you'll find it well paid, challenging and personally rewarding too.
If you have a racquets coaching qualification and impressive experience of managing day-to-day operations and delivering a commercial racquets programme, this role is right for you. As well as making sure we deliver the best facilities, coaching team and events in your club, you'll work closely with the General Manager to develop and deliver a cohesive business plan to drive and develop racquet membership and junior participation. Energetic and enthusiastic, you've played tennis to at least county level, are used to leading others and open to new ideas. What's more, you know how to engage with people from all walks of life, whilst your operational management experience has given you a good understanding of P&L, revenue drive and cost control.
We’re always interested to hear from appropriately qualified coaches with a genuine passion for delivering a racquets (squash, tennis or badminton) experience that exceeds expectations. Freelance roles offering flexible hours on a supply and demand basis, you’ll help raise the profile of racquets within your club, deliver lessons and maybe even manage an In-Club league for our members. So, if you have a friendly but professional demeanour and a natural flair for coaching people at all levels of ability, maybe we should talk.
