Working at Summer Smash Tennis means being part of an engaged, caring, and supportive team.


Our mission as coaches is to create learning environments that are safe, equitable, and appropriately challenging.

Job Title: Tennis Instructor

Term: May 2023 - August 2023 (Spring and Summer)

Summer Smash Tennis is hiring a tennis coach for the spring and summer outdoor season, which runs from May to August. The coach will teach children and adult programs, and will work closely with our team of coaches.


About Us

Since 2012, Summer Smash Tennis has provided high quality tennis programs to community centers and schools in Vancouver. We are known for our small class sizes, focus on technique, and warm community vibe.


Flexible Schedule

Coaches can choose to work between 6 and 30 hours per week from May to August. We offer a flexible schedule and allow coaches to set their own availability. 


Fair Pay

We strive to always pay our coaches fairly and provide opportunities for advancements in pay. New coaches make between $20 and $45 per hour, depending on their ability and experience. 


Social Impact

Unlike private clubs or tennis centres, our lessons have a huge impact on local communities. We introduce students of all ages to the game of tennis and facilitate meaningful skill development at the grassroots level.



This spring and summer, we will be offering programs to Indigenous communities in partnership with Tennis BC. Coaches who are interested can apply to help deliver programs to these communities.



We regularly have social events and often gather at the end of the week for Friday Tennis, which is essentially, drinks, pizza and hitting. 



We have sponsorships or partnerships with Lululemon, Rackets and Runners, and Head. All coaches receive substantial discounts from these retailers (25-50% off).



  • Current Tennis Canada Instructor Certification or international equivalent 


  • An experienced player that enjoys teaching and hanging out with young people (4-13)

  • An understanding of the Progressive Tennis model (red, orange, green ball model)

  • Be a kind, aware, and chill person
