Tournament Performance Development

Vintage Tennis has established a world class Tournament Performance Development program, specifically designed for tournament players (12 – 14 years | 14 – 16 years) with desire and passion, aspiring to maximise their potential.

The world class program provides the opportunity to secure the components required to heighten personal performance on the tournament stage, thus take their game to ‘world best’ standards. Furthermore leading through to a Post Junior Foundation Program in readiness for the Pro Tours.

Many of the world’s leading players have come through a similar system incorporating ‘peer progress’ and  carry with them a sense of pride and community – two vital ingredients to professional success.

Based on the progressiveness and individuality of players, successful programs around the world allow the athlete to express their character and build a ‘game’ around the inner person.

“The higher the level of tennis gets, the less it comes down to just technical skills, and from that moment physical and mental power will determine more and more your ultimate performance level.”
