2024 Tennis Program

The GSA will again run a Tennis program in 2024.

The Academy team will be coordinated by the Gippsland Sports Academy Golf Advisory Panel and Program Staff and will provide a development pathway for regionally based athletes.

The Academy shall also provide off-course services around strength and conditioning, sport science and athlete education to compliment the work being done on the course to develop the Tennis athletes.

Jason Yap is Head Coach for the 2024 program. The GSA would like to thank the Victorian State Government, Tennis Victoria, Baw Baw, Bass Coast, South Gippsland, East Gippsland, Wellington and Latrobe City Councils for their ongoing support.

We would like to acknowledge TAFE Gippsland and the Gippsland Tennis Clubs who generously provide their facilities for training sessions.

The GSA looks forward to seeing the new athletes grow and develop their skills in this new season.
