Tennis has always been a big part of Peligoni, and with private coaching, group tennis clubs and a weekly Wimbledon style tournament, there are plenty of ways for guests to enjoy this much-loved summer sport during their holiday.
We are looking for an inspiring and energetic coach to lead the club’s tennis offering.
Tennis at Peligoni
Social and challenging, tennis is a brilliant way for our guests to keep active on holiday. Our tennis coach offers a daily programme of group classes, catering to all ages and abilities as well as private coaching for individuals and small groups.
It is also the responsibility of the tennis coach to ensure that the court is always well maintained and kit is kept in excellent condition.
When not on the court, they will be expected to take on other duties, such as assisting with our childcare programme or helping out in the restaurant at lunchtime. This is a great opportunity to meet guests and promote the tennis programme and to interact with the rest of the Peligoni team.
Who We Are Looking For
This is an ideal role for someone with a real passion for tennis and coaching people of all ages. They will have a positive, can-do attitude and as a representative of Peligoni, they will be professional, polite and always willing to help.
In your spare time, as well as being able to explore the island and experience the local food and culture, you will have access to the club’s watersports facilities, allowing you to hone your existing skills or learn new ones in sailing and windsurfing.
