Our mission is to deliver a world class tennis program to our athletes, enabling them to achieve their full potential on and off the court.

Program Components

Our philosophy is based on ensuring our Voyager athletes are continually improving towards defined, shared objectives and goals throughout the elite tennis pathway. We have a systematic approach to goal setting continually benchmarked against the ‘4 key cals’: Techni-cal, Tacti-cal, Psychologi-cal, and Physi-cal development.

Our coaching team is led by Luke Bourgeois, a former ATP Tour Pro and one of Australia’s leading high-performance coaches. Along with having a proven track record developing world-class players, our coaches have all played top level junior tennis, been coached by some of the most experienced international coaches and many have competed on the professional tour.

In addition to our training program, our athletes compete in weekly competitive match play sessions. These vary from practice matches based on key learnings from the week, UTR match play, team-based college matches, in-house competition ladders. The sessions are often filmed for our athletes to review.

Our athletes develop skills such as speed, agility, endurance, core stability, strength, power, balance, flexibility, and posture, whilst being able to reduce the chance of short and long-term repetitive injuries.

The Tennis Specific Musculoskeletal Screen is designed and delivered by Precision Athletica for Injury Prevention and Performance Enhancement. This provides our athletes with access to the same level of practitioners and high-performance training equipment that professional athletes and Olympians would have access to.

This provides our athletes with the tools and strategies to take advantage of their physical, technical, and tactical skills in practice and matches. Also provided are tennis parenting workshops, to empower parents to nurture healthy psychological development.

Our athletes have access to video analysis and analytics through our partners at 1-3-5 Tennis Analytics.

In addition to daily feedback throughout the training program, each athlete is provided with detailed reporting twice per year to reflect on progress and reset goals. Some examples of areas used in planning and benchmarking include:

  • Anthropometric Measurements: Height, Weight, BMI. 
  • Tournament Performance: Ranking, Results, Match Counts
  • Physical Performance: Speed, Strength, Endurance and Agility testing
  • Psychological Performance
  • Goal Setting and Personalized Tournament Planning

This service is provided at selected events by our team of professional coaches. Our coaches assist our players with professional warm up routines; pre-match tactical discussions, scouting, match analysis and post-match debriefs. This is a vital part of the process in which our expert coaching team assists with the fast tracking of our athletes’ development.
