Minister of Sports and Community Development, Shamfa Cudjoe, has congratulated the Tennis Association of Trinidad and Tobago on attaining ITF Bronze Level Certification for Coaches.

The Ministry of Sport and Community Development lauded the Tennis Association of Trinidad and Tobago in attaining the Bronze Level Certification of its Coaches Education System from the International Tennis Federation (ITF). 

The Ministry of Sport says this implies that our local coaches' education system is "equipped with the precise resources to independently certify coaches according to the ITF guidelines."

Trinidad and Tobago is one of 15 countries worldwide that possesses the Bronze Level Certification and is the only English-speaking Caribbean nation to achieve this status. 

The different tiers of certification are White Level,  Bronze level, Silver level, and Gold level.

Minister of Sport and Community Development, the Honourable Shamfa Cudjoe congratulated the Tennis Association on the accomplishment.

“Our National Policy on Sport has capacity-building deeply entrenched in every milestone, and this certification brings us one step closer to realizing our full potential. Our athletes have always demonstrated that we are a force to be reckoned with, and our administrative bodies must also continue to operate at the highest benchmark. This is a great moment for sports,” Minister Cudjoe stated.

The Tennis Association can now conduct  ITF-sanctioned certification courses up to Level 1, which will be conducted at the National Racquet Centre.
