The McDonald College in partnership with Voyager Tennis delivers a program that allows elite tennis players the opportunity to further develop their tennis careers whilst completing their academic studies.
This program works with Tennis students as elite performers with the same requirements as elite performing artists. The program allows for daily training in their area of performance whilst completing their secondary education at the highest levels. The McDonald College sets aside 2 hours per day for performance training in addition to normal academic studies. When MCD students go to the dance, music or acting studios our Tennis students head for the Courts under the tutelage of Voyager Tennis at the Olympic facilities at Homebush.
