Learn 2 Lead

Tennis Australia’s Learn 2 Lead youth leadership program aims to equip young women aged 14-18 with leadership skills and confidence to lead change in their local tennis communities.


  • Equip young women in tennis with life and leadership skills to build their self confidence
  • Embed youth voices in local tennis communities
  • Engage more young women in leadership opportunities within tennis
  • Ensure the program is truly inclusive – particularly culturally, socio-economically and geographically

  • Build life and leadership skills
  • Feel confident and unlock you own power to step into leadership positions at your club
