What is Project Talent?
Project Talent is improving the quality and quantity of athletes under the age of 15.
Tennis Australia’s Project Talent forms the base of the Athlete Development Pathway.
Project Talent seeks to:
- identify and develop the most promising under 15-year-old players in Australia
- track the development of our most promising 15 and under athletes
- Continue to develop a passionate network of private coaches specialising in the 15/u age group
