News: Students Serve Up Top Coaching Tips

Please note: This news story may contain information that is no longer current or up to date.
Tennis School Event 2017

Central College sport students delivered over 1625 hours of coaching by supporting the Nottingham Mini Tennis Schools Festival which was organised to run alongside the 2017 Aegon Open Nottingham (9-17 June).

Fifty students coached over 2000 primary school children who attended the mini-tennis festival as part of the celebrations. The students had to undergo pre-event training which was delivered by tennis coach Martyn Jones. Then they took part in an onsite briefing and familiarisation session at the tennis centre before the event took place.

Diane Garfield, Community and Performance Sport Manager at Central, said

As in previous years our students had a fantastic opportunity to be part of a major sporting event in Nottingham and develop their sport leadership and coaching skills. Many of the sport students have now signed up to get involved in more events at the tennis centre, therefore working more closely with employers in the industry. Sport work experience is embedded into the students' sport course at college and it develops employability skills for their future careers.
