Kooyong International Tennis Academy’s Tournament Performance Program (TPP) is specifically designed for Junior athletes (13 – 16 years) aspiring to maximise their potential, to be as good as they can be and/or to become a professional tennis player.


This world class program provides the opportunity for advanced players to secure the components required to heighten performance on the tournament stage. It is more than how to swing, it is about how to play and the specific process and structure that leads to being successful (winning).

Many of the world’s leading players have developed through an all-inclusive holistic system similar to KITA’s TPP. Furthermore, they have progressed through a Post Junior Performance Foundation Program. Both programs are stepping stones that lead to the Pro Tour Professionalism program.

The 4 x structural components are progressively linked resulting in an encompassing all court global game. 

Each session incorporates all strokes, mental preparedness, and the encouragement to be creative, unique and courageous. Collectively, the sessions reinforce the discipline required to execute and sustain high performance levels.
