We believe that sport and fitness should be available to everyone and are looking for inspirational Tennis Coaches to bring tennis to our members.

Although you’ll enjoy the performance aspect of coaching, what you really love is getting more and more people to play – especially a ‘non-traditional’ tennis audience.

Visually Impaired tennis (also known as VI tennis, Sound tennis or Blind tennis) is one of the leading sports for blind and partially sighted people in the UK.

Metro Blind Sport has been at the forefront of promoting the game.

This format of the game is slightly different to traditional tennis – it’s played on a smaller court with a lower net. Some courts also have tactile lines – so players can touch them – and players also use an audible tennis ball that makes noise so they can hear it bounce and being hit.

As an experienced coach, you’ll be qualified to Level 1 or 2. You’ll need to be driven, passionate about what you do and able to work independently but with the support and guidance of our staff team and our volunteers.

We will provide you with all the information you need on how to adapt coaching for visually impaired players.

If you are keen to get involved in a really rewarding coaching opportunity, please send your CV to sport@metroblindsport.org.
