Gender equality is a critical determinant of health and wellbeing. Females remain under-represented in sport – both on and off the field – in participation, media coverage and leadership positions. These inequalities send a damaging message, not just to our female athletes but to all women and to our society as a whole. Sport provides a valuable setting to change social norms, attitudes and culture to advance gender equality. At the University Tennis Academy, we are in a fortunate position to help facilitate change through our tennis programs at Melbourne University.
Participants will sign up for an 9 week program, undertaking a single 45 minute class per week at their chosen time slot.
