Every semester we have the opportunity to send a few of our players to attend certification to become a tennis coach with the Norwegian Tennis Federation. This is given for free, but each player taking the course must commit to a period of time where he/she coaches players in our club (and there is a set number of hours you must complete).
If becoming a coach and helping other players is tempting (and you have a decent level of play yourself), then contact the board to apply for the programme. The course will make you develop yourself as a player, and you may find opurtunities to earn money by working for different clubs, or taking private lessons in the future.
You can read more about the federation's education programs at their website (https://tennis.no/Utdanning). The "coach1"-course (trener1), is the most relevant course for our members.
