‘The workshop runs in conjunction with the 2023 Australian Junior Clay Court National Championships at the Next Generation Lyneham Tennis Centre’.

The workshop will allow Abigail to undertake the following:

-Build a support network with Tennis Australia Coach Development Staff; and

-Observe Practical Application of key priorities for developing elite junior players and how to
