Professional Tennis Registry (PTR) is the only tennis teaching certification organization that offers targeted education, certification and qualifications. Which route you choose depends on the level and age group you prefer to coach, have experience in and/or whom you are primarily teaching.
In an effort to elevate the standards of tennis teaching professionals and coaches in the United States, PTR and USPTA agreed to Continuing Education Requirements. Effective January 1, 2014, both organizations require their certified members earn a minimum of 12 Continuing Education Hours every 3 years. Any one of the following educational events will fulfill the U.S. member Continuing Education requirement through December 31, 2016.
PTR has five (5) certifications to fit the needs of tennis teaching professionals worldwide: 10 & Under, 11 to 17, Performance, Adult and Senior Development. Due to knowledge needed, time and expense there is no one certification that encompasses all five areas.
