Voyager Tennis operates from 13 tennis venues in Australia and Singapore with more than 10,000 players participating each week and 100+ coaches who deliver quality tennis programs and competitions at each location. The academy is fast becoming one of the most impactful tennis organisations in the industry and views itself as responsible for growing and enhancing the game, through increasing participation, upgrading ageing tennis facilities, and developing and upskilling career tennis professionals. In this article we share some of our insights and our approach to running a successful tennis venue. These principles can be used by managers and owners of facilities to help improve participation and to contribute toward growing the game of tennis.
