The LTA have undertaken 3 successful pilots of the forthcoming LTA Padel Instructor qualification. As a result, final tweaks are being made to the course before it launches in early 2023 for delivery by Coach Development Centres. This means that there will be a proliferation of courses across the UK and throughout the year. The LTA Instructor qualification entails 4 days’ core training, face to face with the Tutor plus one further five-hour Elective workshop, from a choice of two. The Electives will be how to Coach the Double Glass and how to Coach Kids’ Padel. Both will also be open to non-qualification coaches wishing to do the courses as CPD. Coaches wishing to prepare for the Padel Instructor qualification
will need to do a Padel Instructor Readiness Test, which can be booked via the LTA Course Search Tool. The test costs £36 and is conducted remotely/video based. All assessments are now  centralised, which means that upon successful completion of the Padel Instructor: Core Training, coaches will need to book and successfully complete their Padel Instructor Summative Assessment as the final step.  Existing racket sport coaches, who would like to sign up for the one day LTA Introduction to Padel Coaching CPD can now do so via the LTA website. Completion of the one-day course provides 3 points towards the LTA tennis coaching license.
