Project Talent

What is Project Talent?

Project Talent is improving the quality and quantity of athletes under the age of 12.

Tennis Australia’s Project Talent forms the base of the Athlete Development Pathway.

Project Talent seeks to:

  • identify and develop the most promising under 12-year-old players in Australia
  • track the development of our most promising 12 and under athletes
  • spread the word about Project Talent
  • Continue to develop a passionate network of private coaches specialising in the 12/u age group
