Future Leaders

What is Future Leaders?

Tennis Victoria’s Future Leaders Program enables our next generation of volunteers to work closely with our local tennis clubs in creating welcoming environments on and off the tennis court.

The program

    • Is designed for Year 10 and 11 students, who are passionate about tennis and want to develop their leadership skills
    • Provides participants with the opportunity to make a difference at their local tennis club

As part of the program, participants will:

    • Attend a three day camp, to develop important teamwork and leadership skills and work with our team here at Tennis Victoria to develop a project plan to take back to their tennis club to complete.
    • Work with their club to complete a minimum of 40 hours work in completing the project
    • Upon completion, participants are invited to attend a graduation hosted by Tennis Victoria in recognition for all their hard work.

Why become a Future Leader?

✔ Make a positive change at your tennis club

✔ Build leadership skills, confidence & self-esteem

✔ Make new friends with like-minded people within the tennis community

✔ Gain skills that can be used in all aspects of life

✔ Receive guidance from our team here at Tennis Victoria

Don’t take our word for it

“My tennis club paid for me to complete the Future Leaders Program, I enjoyed my 40 hour project and now aim to start a junior committee at my tennis club to organise more programs.”
