Tennis Schools are recognised by Tennis Victoria as one of the many player delivery partners that provide juniors with an opportunity to support their tennis development and training.
While tennis schools vary greatly in their individual programs, broadly speaking, each school provides a combination of educational opportunities packaged with a tennis program designed to set the foundation for junior players wanting to progress their tennis. For many juniors, the demand for a balanced school and tennis training program is difficult to achieve and this is where tennis schools can help. To assist players and the tennis community to better understand tennis schools and the opportunities they offer, Tennis Victoria has developed the following resource guide:
Tennis Victoria’s Tennis School Guidelines provides a comprehensive outline of relevant factors to consider when assessing the needs of an individual player with the suitability of a particular tennis school to those needs. It is recommended that you refer to this guide when considering whether a tennis school is right for your circumstances both now and into the future.
