What I love about Tennis?
I loved the intensity of competing as a player and all the life opportunities that Tennis has provided such as character building, world travel and helping me to build a career. I’d like to share these opportunities and help as many players as possible to develop to their full potential as both players and as people.

Introducing Harry Forsyth, who has became a standout in elite junior tennis. 🎾

Despite starting his full-time programme relatively late in Term 3 of Year 10 back in 2022, Harry’s journey has been nothing short of inspiring. Leaving behind the halls of Knox College, Harry has set his sights on a goal of securing a scholarship to a US college facilitated by joining the Voyager Academy Full Time Program. Harry has emerged as one of the fastest improvers in the game, showcasing remarkable progress on the UTR scale.

From an impressive 6.6 UTR in April 2022 to a staggering 10.5 UTR in April 2024 and still climbing, his trajectory is truly remarkable. Not content with just personal achievements, Harry has proudly represented NSW as N#2 in clinching victory in the prestigious Pizzie Cup Team. His accolades include being crowned Australian Schoolboy Champion and earning a coveted spot in the All Australian Team. But Harry’s journey doesn’t end there.

With an ITF Ranking under his belt and a notable appearance as Singles Finalist in the J30 Fiji ITF in April, he’s just getting started. As he prepares to graduate from high school in 2024, Harry has his sights set on the next chapter: US College. Come Autumn 2025, he’ll be aiming to take his talents to the collegiate level, armed with a passion for the game and an unwavering determination to succeed. 🎓
