Dear Members and friends,
The Padel Federation of Ireland is running another Padel Certification Course for tennis coaches (Tennis Coach Ireland members) in July and August. The courses ran by the Padel Federation in the last few years have been a great success – here are some words from a TCI member who attended: “I really enjoyed the Padel course. It was definitely a worthwhile way of advancing my skill set and adapting my tennis coaching skills to the world of Padel”.
Given the success of the first few courses, The Padel Federation in cooperation with TCI has now scheduled one more course to allow coaches who missed out previously to get involved. The syllabus for this course has been specially developed to take into acount the skills tennis coaches already possess, thus saving time and money for those coaches who are contemplating getting involved in Padel.
COURSE DATES: Sun 28th July and Sun 4th August 2019.
COURSE TIMES: 1st Sunday 10 am to 4 pm, 2nd Sunday 10 am to 4 pm.
COURSE VENUE: Bushy Park Tennis & Padel Club, Terenure.
COURSE TUTOR: Colin O’Brien. A former Irish Davis Cup player, Colin is currently teaching tennis and Padel. He is certified by the Spanish and European Padel Federations.
COURSE FEES: The full cost of the course and assessment process is €250. The course normally runs for 15 hours, and costs €500, so this specific tennis coaches course represents significant savings.

PADEL FEDERATION OF IRELAND AND TENNIS COACH IRELAND:
In 2016 Tennis Coach Ireland carried out a survey of our member’s attitude to the game of Padel Tennis. At our last National Conference, Colin O’Brien and Joe Cabello of the Padel Federation of Ireland gave a presentation on Padel. We had very positive responses to both the survey and the presentation – many members were keen to get involved in Padel. TCI’s main priority as regards Padel is that our members are in a position of strength should the game come to your club or area.
