Elite Program Venue

Venue

The Sydney Olympic Park Tennis Centre is the home of tennis in New South Wales and plays host to the world-renowned Sydney Tennis International.

The centre offers a wide range of activities and facilities - to meet the needs of all tennis athletes.

The venue boasts 16 international Plexicushion championship courts; 2 clay courts; and the Ken Rosewall Arena that hosts 10,500 people.

Our students have access to the onsite gymnasium and other valuable resources available in the Sydney Olympic Park such as the Aquatic Centre, State Sports Centre and Athletic Track.

Elite Program Overview


Our Full Time Elite players have the opportunity to train 5 days a week, Monday to Friday – across 4 terms per year.

Each term is built upon a round of testing and bench marking at the start to determine both fitness levels and play levels. We then focus on delivering the building blocks of improvement (footwork, shape and weight of shot, transition, serve & return and fitness) to ensure an accelerated rate of development.

Each term is structured with the following building blocks within our tennis schedule:

  • Testing – Bench marking and tracking all areas of our athlete’s physical & technical development
  • Group Coaching – covers technical, tactical and mental components
  • Match play (themed and competitive). Themed match play is designed to emphasize weekly themes while competitive match play is designed to see if student can apply what has been learnt during the week in a competitive situation.
  • Fitness (gym and outside work – field etc). Our strength and condition is completed two times per week lead by the professionals at Optimum Performance and outdoors two times per week
  • Recovery ( Injury Prevention)– trigger point, foam roller etc.
  • Tournament support – touring coaches sent to key tournaments. It's one of our major strengths as team given our Head Coaches touring experience. Knowing how to prepare for your match (physical nutrition, strategy etc) is key. Our coaches offer advice and give post match analysis which is essential in player’s development.
  • Player Development- off court lectures on strategy and mental component. We believe our players can improve off the court as well as on, we often use these in the case of wet weather
  • Tournament scheduling – key component of our program as this will determine program content and planning. Each player has a periodized and personalized tournament schedule.  

On-site Gym Sessions

Students are coached through 2 on-site gym sessions every week. It is an evidence-based strength and conditioning program supervised by 'University Qualified Exercise Physiologist’s' with a strong emphasis on long term athletic development; postural correction; injury prevention; and improving strength, speed, agility and power.

End of Term Report – 'Player Review'

At the end of each term students are provided with a review meeting to go over their benchmarks taken at the beginning and end of the course – and to reflect on their progress. The review also covers a summary analysis of all the individual time delivered – with suggested areas of game development and improvement.
