“Connecting people and ideas”

Sunday 19 January

The Glasshouse (Olympic Boulevard, Melbourne Park)

Bringing together world leading tennis and coaching experts, the Grand Slam Coaches’ Conference can help ensure that you, your athletes and your business thrive in 2020.

On Sunday 19 January 2020, we are serving up inspiring presentations and in depth panel discussions with industry leading professionals designed to help you connect with fellow coaches from the Asia-Pacific region and beyond. We welcome everyone to come along and be part of the fun. If you’re travelling from interstate or abroad, the conference is a great chance to experience the vibrant city of Melbourne and our summer of tennis.

Unique to this year’s program, our team of expert presenters will explore the theme of ‘Improving while Proving’, focusing on understanding the role of the coach ‘as a performer’ and in the approach to the development of players capable of achieving their ‘best’ performances.
