Muscillo Tennis Academy (MUSTA), founded by internationally renowned Head Coach AJ Muscillo, is at the forefront of the game when it comes to player development. MUSTA has been nationally recognised and awarded by Tennis Australia as a leading Academy whose programs and pathway is the bench mark for teaching techniques, developing players and coaches, hosting national points tournaments, running training and tournament camps, as well as directing Tennis and educational schooling programs.
The essence of our philosophy is to create and ensure a positive, friendly and challenging environment for all students. Through this we are able to educate our players with our world-class expertise and provide players with a rare knowledge and structured program that gives them the confidence to believe in themselves, understand their own game and to play with a purpose. Our philosophy has been developed from dissecting the game at the elite international level, then designing regressions and progressions in all our programs to suit the beginner player, aspiring pro or the social adult who wishes to get fit whilst still improving their game. Our team is constantly researching the game and keeping our knowledge up-to-date to ensure a successful pathway for all participants.
With all our coaches being involved and having a contribution to the weekly lesson planning, lessons are tailored specificially to where each group/player is at in their development. This creates a challenging but successful experience for players, week in – week out and sees players of all ages and standards improving immensely. MUSTA caters for all players – We offer programs for Hot Shot junior groups from 3-16 years of age, numerous squad levels for the beginner looking to enter club competition, the tournament competitiors and also the high performance international players. We also have social adult cardio tennis, adult group lessons, private lessons for rapid development and organised matchplay ladders.
MUSTA also prides itself on conducting regular coach education, allowing for all coaches to have a similar and extensive philosophy that ensures every player who participates in the Academy gets the best possible experience. MUSTA is also unique in the industry in that it pioneered the presence of an extra roaming coach during Hot Shot group classes to enhance further individual attention and player development.
MUSTA creates an environment that is positive, challenging and professional, which allows all players to grow in a holistic manner and achieve their personal goals. More than just a Tennis Academy, MUSTA is a school of excellence teaching commitment, etiquette and mental toughness.
"Muscillo Tennis Academy are amazing! Professional and passionate - the coaches are awesome, the atmosphere is welcoming and I honestly feel like they're family. My daughter has improved both her skills and confidence and one of the best things I've ever done is start Cardio Tennis - its fun, it's intense and I always feel incredible afterwards. Thank you AJ and crew for all your dedication, integrity and determination - you rock!"
"I have know AJ for nearly 15 years through my son's tennis. My son joined AJ when he was a junior and once I went to AJ's academy there was never any turning back. AJ has not only been a tennis coach to my boy he has been a mentor and life coach. The care and loyalty he shows his student is second to none. Even through some difficult times and serious medical issues (brain tumor) AJ continued to mentor my son even by visits to our home. He had even left my son's training spot vacant for months until my son was ready to resume. AJ is a great coach but is so much more."
"Both my children have been going here for years, not only are they very professional but they really concentrate on getting the best out of the kids. My kids love tennis and love going."
