If you are a tennis lover, you would be familiar with big names such as Roger Federer, Serena and Venus Williams, Rafael Nadal, Andy Murray and Novak Djokovic.

The impressions that we usually have of them are mostly through the watching and cheering sessions from our television or computer screens.

What we are used to seeing are the glorious, glamorous and flawless sides of a successful tennis athlete.

What we often fail to notice is the big support system behind their success which includes dedicated coaches, therapists, doctors, psychologists and their families.

If you are beginning to learn tennis or you are still learning, never underestimate how you can progress with the guidance and motivation of a tennis tutor.

Why You Should Consider To Become A Tennis Coach/Tutor As A Side Hustle?

If you have previously joined tennis tournaments and you are thinking of starting a side hustle, you might want to try out as a tennis tutor.

You don't have to worry too much about your initial experience and you can try out as a tennis tutor for younger kids first.

Do you know that you can even sign up as a tennis tutor at Superprof regardless of your age and teaching qualification?

Having said that, here are a few reasons that you can ponder on and do a simple checklist if you fit the bill.

a) You have a big passion for tennis and mentoring 

Combining your interest and ability into a side hustle is really a dream come true for many of us.

It would be a great experience of channeling your love for tennis and coaching into real action to help someone to master tennis from the very beginning. It will give you a huge sense of satisfaction at the end of the experience.

b) You are interested to pursue coaching as a full-time career in the future 

Think of this experience of tennis tutoring as something that you can include in your future resume. If you are considering full-time coaching in the future, this would be a great advantage when applying for private tutoring.

You can even apply for a full-time tennis coach position at a school/sports club.

c) You want to have a flexible working schedule 

Given that your students may come from various walks of life, your tennis tutoring sessions are not fixed and it is entirely up to you and your students to arrange for a time that fits.

This means, you could arrange for a learning schedule during weekday nights or during the weekends, depending on both of your availability. It is entirely up to you to decide on the frequency and duration of the training sessions too.
