Tennis Northern are looking for a Tennis Manager to look after both our programs and the coaches here at the Albany Tennis Park.
Tennis Northern Inc. is an amateur sports body promoting and managing the game of tennis from the Harbour Bridge to Cape Reinga. The organization’s mission is to get more people playing more tennis more often.
Based at the Albany Tennis Centre which is the No. 1 tennis facility in NZ, with 6 Indoor courts and 15 Outdoor courts plus a Pro Shop, Gym, Cafe / Bar, and Function Rooms. Within the Albany Tennis Park, Regional staff deliver indoor winter leagues and national programmes in Cardio Tennis, Tennis Xpress (adult beginners) and Tennis Hotshots for children under twelve. The centre is used for the Regional ‘Supercity’ youth academy.
The role is for 30 hours a week Monday to Friday 1.30pm to 7.30pm. The key time is from 3.30pm to 7.30 pm when our programs run. The rest of the time would be for administration, visiting clubs, coach development and meeting with parents to ensure we are delivering excellence across the various platforms. During school holidays there will be the requirement to run the school holiday program for one week and this is from 8.30 to 5.30pm Monday to Friday. The alternate week we always host a tournament where you will not be required to work though there is the opportunity to view the players.
Outside of the Tennis Northern commitments they will be able to offer private lessons to individuals.
The successful applicant will need a relevant tennis coach qualification and be familiar with the Tennis New Zealand programs that include Hotshots, Tennis Xpress, Cardio and Skills and Drills. They will be both on court mentoring and supporting our current team of coaches and, if required, deliver sessions. They will need to have high energy levels, a positive attitude and a can-do-anything philosophy. We are a small, versatile team so there may be jobs required outside of the specific job description.
Remuneration would be based on experience and qualifications.
