International Coaches Institute
ICI was founded in 1989 as Tennis Consulting International, with the aim of offering a wide range of consulting services in the analysis, design, construction, maintenance and management of sporting facilities, as well as in the integrated management of sporting events. Faced with the growth and extension of what had started with tennis moving to other sports, Luis Mediero converted this company into the International Coaches Institute. From 2002 onwards, the International Coaches Institute started to function as an umbrella organisation for the different professional registries in order to help them develop and expand internationally.
As of today, the International Coaches Institute (ICI) has become the main worldwide organisation dedicated to offering education programmes, international certification and integrated professional services to coaches in the teaching of tennis, golf, padel tennis, fitness and spa. This is done through their various Professional Registries: Tennis (RPT), Golf (RPG), Padel Tennis (RPP), Fitness (RPF) and Spa (RPS). There is one clear objective: to offer all the tools necessary to train people through sport. The ICI can count on over 35,000 qualified trainers in 122 countries and since its foundation has trained over 100,000 sporting coaches.
Currently the Sports section of ICI is made up of the Registries of Tennis, Padel, Fitness and Spa.
The ICI also operates in the corporate world with Corporate Training and Corporate Athlete. These programmes apply the secrets of high level sporting success to the business world, offering different theoretical/practical advice so that professionals can reach an Ideal Competitive State. The Corporate Athlete programme has trained more than 5.000 high level executives throughout the world to reach a higher level of performance.
SportsMarketing is the sports marketing division of the Company, dealing with sporting promotion via event organisation, competitions, tournaments, clinics and educational activities. More than 750,000 players have taken part in these events. It also develops promotional and sponsorship marketing plans related to the sporting industry, as well as providing consulting services.
The Registry of Multimedia Professionals: RPMutimedia’s mission is to share the company’s interactive and communication devices with their clients. The Registry of Racket Stringers Professionals (RPE) was created to offer training programmes, international certification and integrated services to professionals working in racket stringing and preparation. In 2013 the Sports Marketing Institute was set up to train and develop courses for sporting representation, the organisation and commercialisation of sporting events and consulting in the world of entertainment.
Corporate Training, Corporate Athlete, Sportsmarketing, RP Multimedia, RP Encordadores and Sports Marketing Institute make up the Business section of ICI.
