Volunteer as a tennis coach in Ghana and give children the chance to play tennis in a fun, structured environment. Coaching tennis in Ghana is a great way to volunteer in Ghana while providing more tennis opportunities for young players. Also work on your own game and play against some real talent.
Tennis in Ghana
As an emerging sport, Ghanaian tennis has yet to make a strong impact on the international stage. However, the standard is steadily improving and the Ghanaian Tennis Association (GTA) is keen to develop the country's younger players.
This tennis coaching placement will allow you to work with these players, giving them the chance to have fun and progress in the sport they are most passionate about. You may also have the opportunity to work alongside GTA coaches with some of Ghana's top players.
Your Tennis Volunteer Placement
The tennis placement is ideal for any volunteer who wants to get alongside young people through fun and enjoyable sports activities. The emphasis is on participation and there is no pressure to have any extensive coaching knowledge. The players are keen to take part and, with support from our in-country team and the local coaches, you will soon provide the forum for them to do so. And, if you have the confidence and desire to pursue them, we have a number of links with the top tennis institutions throughout Ghana . Placements have been secured in the National Tennis Centre and the National Sports College in the capital, Accra . Here you can be placed alongside the top coaches and national youth squads. You can even try your chances against the African game yourself!
Your Tennis Coaching Role
Volunteers will have the chance to coach at a variety of different levels depending on your experience and personal preference. Volunteers start by being placed alongside the coaches at local clubs. Here you will help run training sessions and organise games among the young players. You will also be encouraged to work with players on an individual basis, giving you the chance to introduce some of you own coaching ideas if you wish. Some of your time may also be spent 'spotting' new talent at regular tennis clinics. Furthermore, you will be able to coach and participate in the training sessions for the Junior National Squads. These 12-16 year-olds are serious about the game and have dreams of becoming the first Ghanaians to make a mark on global tennis. Volunteers with a basic level of playing or coaching experience are able to make a worthwhile contribution to the game and its development in Ghana.
