    Compensation for an injured tennis coach


    Tennis is a great sport and one that many people watch on television, especially when the Grand Slam events roll around. However we never see all the hard work that goes on behind the scenes and in between events. It is this work that is put in with a player’s coach that can determine how well – or badly – they do when they walk out onto the court to play a match.

    Injuries happen in sport all the time. However it is uncommon for an injured tennis coach to be the one receiving treatment. Normally it would be the player who is struggling with an injury picked up during the sport itself. There are occasions however when there is a greater potential for an injured tennis coach to be hurt during the course of their work.

    What could happen to cause them injury?

    Tennis coaches won’t normally be injured as they do not play tennis in the same way the players do. They stand by and offer advice and support that will allow the player to develop their game in the best possible way.

    Of course we all know that accidents can happen, just as we also know accidents can potentially occur if health and safety measures are not in place. Imagine for example that a player and their coach visit a tennis centre or outdoor courts at a training facility. They would expect those facilities to be in good condition and safe to use. If there are any problems with the courts, or the people in charge do not maintain the interior areas in the best possible way, this could lead to an injured tennis coach perhaps suffering a trip, slip or fall.

    Many accidents can be avoided

    This is the good news. For the most part the people who are in charge of providing facilities to players and their coaches will make sure they follow the health and safety regulations. If they do this they will be in a good position to ensure there is no danger of anyone being hurt in any way. Negligence, however, is more likely to lead to an accident happening. This might be the reason behind an injured tennis coach who is trying to recover from some injury.
