Tennis NZ Performance Coach Support Programme

Tuesday, 01 August 2023

The Tennis NZ High Performance and Coach Development teams are pleased to announce the launch of the Performance Coach Support Programme.

This programme is designed to bring our performance coaching community together to engage in continuing professional development opportunities. It is also a chance to share ideas and build relationships with like-minded peers across the country working in the performance space and always looking to improve themselves and their players.

Tennis NZ will be running seminars at our key tournaments in which our performance players are competing.

Seminars will be focused on different elements of performance coaching and sport science, with webinars delivered online between the in-person sessions.

You can find out more about the programme and the scheduled events for the next 12 months HERE.
