National Talent Camps & National Tournaments


For the past 3 years Tennis Australia Project Talent has put together under 10 Tennis Australia National Tennis Camps in Canberra at the Australian Institute of Sport. In 2011 Tristan Schoolkate and in 2013 Brodie Schoolkate were selected from WA to attend these National Tennis Camps as they won numerous WA under 10 tournaments and held nr 1 ranking in WA at age 10.

Peter has participated as their private coach at these national camps now for 2 out of the 3 times. Sure as their dad these times have been quite unique as this further developed both the players but it also gained more experience at the high performance end for the coach. This valuable high performance experience had been implemented into our coaching programme.

If you are interested in trying to achieve this level Contact Us as we can get results.


Peter Schoolkate has travelled to numerous National Tennis Championships with his son Tristan Schoolkate (as his coach), Sydney, Melbourne and Mildura. As a Tennis Australia Talent Development Coach you attend 2 high performance workshops at these national events and gain additional high performance experience.

In 2014 the national calendar is changing and it looks like the December showdown will be the only national championships (previously there were 4 per year) held at Melbourne Park.


We (the coaches at Schoolkate Tennis) like to congratulate Tristan Schoolkate on being awarded a Wild Card into the National Academy and wish him well. We look forward watching your progress.
