SportsProsConnect - The New Worldwide Tennis Coaching Jobs Platform

Excited to Launch a Jobs Platform for Tennis Coaches:

We are extremely excited to be able to announce that our worldwide tennis coaching jobs platform will be going live during next week, week commencing 21st October 2019.  This is extremely exciting news and is something that has been brewing since May 2019 when we placed our first coach in Shanghai, China.

The new platform will have a huge impact on our members, especially the coaches who are actively looking for work.  Currently any coach that is interested in applying for jobs we have advertised has to do so through us.  They have to contact us to ask for more information on each registered job and then let us know if they are interested in applying.  We then assess the suitability of the coach considering the ability of the coach, the suitability of the role, and of course any visa implications.

The new platform will change this, and the purpose of this blog is to explain how we work to potential new and existing members, be it as coaches applying for jobs and also to potential facility owners or directors who are looking to use our services to find coaches.

Svetko ‘Luki’ Bjelotomic was the first coach placed by SportsProsConnect.

How we help Coaches looking for jobs globally:

As a non member you will be able to see our jobs board, however you will only see limited information. If you would like to see more, you have to be a member.  In order to register to be a member, please click on ‘Register Now’.

To register, please complete the online form and make payment.  Once we see your registration we will contact you with the first steps required.  We first have to speak with you and build up your online profile using information you send us.  This will become your online cv which will be sent in any job application you make, so needs to be comprehensive.  It is therefore essential that we speak with you if we haven’t already, as we pride ourselves in knowing about our coaches so that we can assess suitability for roles.

Once we have created your profile and spoken with you about your goals, please apply for the various roles yourself making sure to include a covering letter.  We will then approve your application and send it to our clients who will then contact you themselves or give us feedback as to whether or not you are suitable for the role.

We will also introduce you into our social media network and announce the sort of role you are looking for, so there is also the potential opportunity for being headhunted.

Susan Nardi was one of the first to be headhunted for a role using our platform, and you can see what she has to say about SportsProsConnect and our services down below:

How employers around the world find coaches within our jobs platform:

Employers have 2 different ways of registering their vacancies within our jobs platform.

Firstly they can become a member of SportsProsConnect and pay an annual rate.  This annual rate promotes their Academy, Club, Resort or Facility on the platform itself and we will aim to drive additional traffic to their main website.  Included within the annual fee is the registration of unlimited job advertisements throughout the year.

In order to register the job vacancies, each facility will need to log in using their username and password to be able to advertise their jobs.  They will then be able to manually add all the information required for their job posting.  This will then be authorised by a member of SPC staff and the job will then be available on

The second way is to pay on a ‘pay as you go’ basis.  At any one time you can register up to 3 vacancies for a one off fee.  Payment is made via credit card or paypal and you do not have to become a member.

Once the jobs are registered onto the platform, coaches will start to apply for these directly.  All applications will come directly to us at SportsProsConnect and we know our coaches extremely well on a personal level.  As a business, we will vet all applications, making sure the coach has sent a covering letter as to why he / she would be a good candidate for the role.  We do not want to waste the employers time sending candidates that do not meet the criteria or ones who would not be eligible for a work visa.  SPC will only send the top coaches that match the needs of the job description.

Here is what a client of ours, Ruben Herrera made of our services:
