Tom Mabon - Tennis and the cut throat world of Strength & Conditioning


Tom Mabon

Heading into the summer of tennis in Australia, things are about to get busy for Tom Mabon.

Recently promoted to the senior role of physical performance coach (professional men’s) at Tennis Australia, it’s Tom’s responsibility to make sure Australia’s best male tennis players are in peak condition for the Australian Open and the tennis season ahead.

The High Performance Project

Tom talks about the ‘cut throat’ world of strength and conditioning, where he was turned down for countless internships before finally getting a foot in the door — leaving a high paid insurance position in Sydney for an unpaid role with Tennis SA in Adelaide. But the risk would pay off — five years later, Tom is now running the physical performance program.

Tom shares his story along with fascinating insights into the high performance world of tennis.
