Video clips, Results, Referral letters, Rankings – ITF, AR, ATP/WTA etc. For video, please ensure angle is from the back of court where rally speed, consistency & movement can be assessed. Ideally match play is preferred.
What are my options for accommodation?
For student athletes who live interstate or outside of Australia there are a number of accommodation options to choose from.
1. For long term students, home-stays are a popular option, as it encourages a normal family environment and gives players a support group outside of the training program.
2. Living with the family of a McDonald College student who lives in Sydney can also be great option. Please contact us for more information.

Will my child be challenged with their playing level?
The Voyager Tennis Academy has one of the strongest training environments with many of Australia’s best junior and senior players. We firmly believe we have an extremely challenging environment which is first and foremost program driven. Our program is focused on the development of our fundamental 4 Cals - Technical, Tactical, Psychological, and Physical components.
With tennis being an extremely competitive game, we strive to have the most competitive environment where each players grouping is determined by their ability rather than age, gender or opinion. Our open training environment allows this to happen through day to day competition and our U.T.R match play ladder challenge system.
