Prime Performance

Prime Performance

The Prime Performance program is a high performance training environment that is located at Peppermint Grove Tennis Club. The program offers a comprehensive training structure for athletes who fulfil the entry selection guidelines based on player values, player performance and player potential. The Prime Performance program uses a holistic approach to each athlete’s development.

The Prime Performance training and learning environment is underpinned with the core values of Competitive, Coachable and Committed. Prime Performance coaches strive to provide a total experience from technical training, mental skills, and strategic skills in singles and doubles to team building, flexible scheduling and pure court time. Many of our groups have overlapping drill times, which we use to offer a wider variety of hitting partners for all ages, as well as to create a more cohesive, mentor-based program. And, since no two players are the same, we offer many training options for players to attend as they work towards their individual goals.
