The programme is a means for coaches to add a further string to their bow by gaining additional knowledge and expertise in the field of school tennis. A coach who fully completes the criteria set for the schools expert programme will receive a Tennis Ireland certificate to say that they are an expert in schools tennis and will be listed on both the Tennis Ireland and TCI websites as an “Expert” in this field. A coach will receive 100 CPD points when they qualify as a Schools Tennis Expert.
