If becoming a United States-certified tennis coach is what you have been dreaming of, then your dreams may finally come through before the end of year 2017.
This is because Nigerian Tennis Live can authoritatively report that certified Professional Tennis Registry (PTR) tester, Coach Abel Ubiebi is organizing a training session for coaches who have such dreams without leaving the shores of Nigeria.
Ubiebi, who stands out as one of Nigeria’s finest young coaches, is putting up this PTR certification course for 10 & Under Level 1 and 11-17 Years Level 1 at the National Stadium, Surulere, Lagos.

For the one of the certifications, each coach is required to pay a minimum of $350 while a payment of $420 is expected for anyone interested in both certificates.
The Head Coach at the ACES Tennis Academy, explained that there are over 50 certified PTR coaches in Nigeria, therefore the training is not for everybody. He noted however, that those who may be interested would have the opportunity of getting the certificate after the training.
“This training is actuallý for those who do not have this kind of certificate and for those who have and want to upgrade from what they have to something higher.
“Their certificates will not arrive until after four weeks, though. Because the script of successful coaches would be sent to the United States for marking and results and certification of grades will be sent to them,” the man fondly called Coach Abel explained.
Interested coaches in the training holding from 17-22 December, 2017 have the deadline of Thursday, 30 November for registration.
Nigerian Tennis Live will bring updates from the build up to the training course as they unfold.
