Moving into a life beyond tennis can be a very complex process that tests the mental, emotional and physical resolve of many athletes. For many, losing the identity of being “a professional tennis player” is the most common challenge faced during transition. In 2018 The International Club of Australia established ‘Beyond The Tour’ to support Australian tennis players who are transitioning to life after tennis.
‘Building an identity outside of sport is crucial to prevent the major problems athletes can encounter when they retire. Athletes are also less likely to burn out if they have another project in their life that allows them to disconnect from the intensity of high-performance sport.’ – Crossing the Line
