Are you interested in getting involved?

When it comes to being a tennis coach there are a lot of different ways to get involved. We know that there are a lot of choices, with so many different organizations why should coaches chose the WTCA?

Together we want to make. difference, to build a global tennis community that works together. Our goals is to work with coaches with one mission in mind – To keep more girls in tennis. 

Check out the FAQ’s below to get answers to those common questions. If you have a question that isn’t listed please email us at



How long is the membership period?

WTCA membership is a 12 month membership recurring from the date of sign up. You know exactly what you get when you sign up, we don’t mess with pro rating or coaches mission out on any educational time.

Do you have to be a coach to join the WTCA as a member?

NO. We welcome everybody who is involved in women’s tennis to join our community. Parents, coaches, support teams, players, doctors, physics therapists and many other “stake holders” have already joined the WTCA as a Pro member.

Do you award scholarships for coaches to become members or conference atendees?

YES ABSOLUTELY. Even though the number of scholarships are subject to change we offer up to 10 delegates a scholarship entry to the New York Conference each year. Please apply to the WTCA via email if you would like to be considered for one of these opportunities.

If its not just for female coaches why is it called the women's tennis coaching association?

The association name says it all: The WOMEN’S TENNIS coaching association. So any coach of any gender male, female or non-binary working with a female player is essentially involved in women’s tennis coaching – add association to that and you have the WTCA. A coaching association exclusive to female coaches would likely be named The Women Tennis Coaches Association or something similar.

No refund will be issued for cancellations received less than 10 days before the first day of the annual conference, unless in accordance with the Emergency Policy below. Transfers can only be made if requested by a deadline of 10 days prior to the conference.
