The Coaching Advanced Players Course (former Level 2) is a 12-day course (ten-day course and two-day assessment).  The goal of the Coaching Advanced Players Course is to give participants the competences to teach tennis to intermediate and advanced players involved in competition.

Topics covered in this course include: advanced biomechanics and technique, tactics, teaching methodology, physical training and applied psychology for tennis.  Participants should be of a sufficient playing standard and must have passed an ITF Coaching Beginner & Intermediate Players Course (Level 1) or equivalent.

Throughout the ten-day course, candidates are continually assessed by the ITF tutors and then candidates must undertake several exams including an individual lesson test, a group lesson test, a tennis playing / demonstration test and a written theory test.

All the Coaching Advanced Players Course documents are available below as PDF documents.


All ITF Courses are run through the national tennis association in each country, and the qualification gained at the end of the course represents a qualification recognised by the national association, not an ITF qualification. The ITF do not certify coaches. Through the ITF Coach Education programme, the ITF assists national tennis associations which do not already have a certification system in place to run their own coaches courses.
